Vine is on the decline, Facebook is taking another swipe at Google when it comes to video ads, Twitter lets us get wordier
Is Vine dying?
A Markerly study on Vine reveals that “People are not posting as frequently and engagement is drastically going down.” The majority of influential Vine users (15,000 followers or more) have not posted since last year. Other indications Vine is not growing: views, reposts, and likes have been declining since 2014.
Rival Snapchat dwarfs Vine views by nearly 10x, with 10 billion videos each day.
New Facebook ad formats rolled out to directly compete with Google
Facebook is introducing pre-roll, mid-roll, and post-roll video ad options, giving advertisers the ability to be a part of another publisher’s content.
Video ads that play automatically will now also appear on in-article mobile pages of publishers. This will give advertisers heightened placement of video content.

Replies: @names won’t count toward the 140-character count when replying to a Tweet.
Media attachments: Photos, GIFs, videos, polls, or Quote Tweets will no longer count as characters within Tweets.
