In the past 23 hours, there have been 2.1 million tweets using the #RIPVine and #VineHallofFame hashtags. Twitter users all over the world have been sharing their favorite Vine videos, reminding us all of why it was so great.

The first tweet to use the #RIPVine hashtag was this tweet from @LucieRonfaut.
