Today the news broke that Twitter is to discontinue the video clip ap Vine.
I was never a big user of Vine, but two years ago, something special was going on with Vine and the 2014 Bills season.
Several times, the buzz after a Bills game included viral Vines that popped up all over #Bills Twitter.
Four times, I wrote about who did the Vine and how they took off.
It was always fascinating to see what kind of work went into some (as in the case with social media artist Breyon Harris' Uncle Rico clip), or the instant fame afforded someone who happened to notice something interesting and throw it out into the world from their phone (like Mike Secchiaroli and Liam Speyer did).
The fourth story is less about the Vine (although there is certainly one that was very popular), and more about the subject, Chiefs fan Chris Wilhelm who came to then-Ralph Wilson Stadium as seemingly a carbon copy of Kansas City coach Andy Reid.
Here they are in their original tweets, including the clip and a link to the story "Behind the Vine:"
