Instagram had launched its video clip service in response to Vine. The latter is a Twitter owned app that allows users to take 6 second videos, tag them, and send them on. Consider it a video version of Twitter with 6 seconds of video equaling 140 characters. Vine had launched originally on iOS before recently being made available to Android users. For some reason, while Flipboard now supports Instagram video, it has not yet done so for Vine. Since it does support Vine parent Twitter, it is a bit surprising not to see the 6 second clips on Flipboard.
Meanwhile, after that hot start for Instagram video, it seems that the use of the feature is cooling off.
