I don't twitter or tweet.
Even though a little bird told me I should.
But I do Vine.
It's really fun to watch the 6 second videos play
Especially if they are the mega - funny sort that my sons' friends, Cody and Marcus Johns produce and post. Each has their own individual profile and following.
Their followers grew in a few short months from 0 to - get this - 3 million followers between the two of them!!
How did they rise so quickly to celebrity Vine status? That is the question that The Huffington Post asked in their 16 minute interview of the 2 brothers.
Little did I know my son Jesse was putting Marcus up in his Brooklyn
fourth floor apartment before and after the interviews. So fun. So unglamorous. After all, when the interviewer asked Marcus what he disliked most in
people he answered, "Ego."
Before the interview they were treated to a shopping spree at the Gap. Nice.
And after the show they met fans in Washington Square park.
Then Cody flew back to LA to his NowThis internet news position. http://www.fastcompany.com/3018059/fast-feed/nowthis-news-hires-its-first-vine-vj
Marcus went back to work on his film degree in Tallahassee.
Grounded by the great upbringing of their godly parents (mom Holly, my BFF), who also make guest appearances in their super short, shimmering comedies.
In between their day-to-day working and studying Cody and Marcus will be back to posting
very funny 6-second Vine videos.
So if you don't vine yet, perhaps you should.
Just say you heard about it through the grapevine.
