3 Things You’ll Cringe to See in Twitter’s New Vine App

Last week, Vine, Twitter’s new mobile app for sharing 6-second videos, added a much-awaited feature: front-facing camera support.

For better or for worse, the new feature has allowed users to bombard the service with less-than-inspiring “selfies,” or self-shot videos. Take a look at the crowd:

User creates memories her grandchildren will surely cherish

Hopefully Vine users will get a bit more creative with the front-facing camera feature in the near future. Until then, we’ll have to enjoy the non-selfies others are posting to the network. Take, for example, those from Lowe’s.

Though the home improvement store hasn’t yet uploaded a selfie, we can be thankful for its good taste and self-respect. Lowe’s profile features home improvement tips from removing rust stains from knives to keeping pesky squirrels away from your plants. The videos have been a big hit.

This Vine from Lowe’s shows a stress-free way to remove a stripped screw:

A rubber band does the trick
