Ironically, Cinemagram had been having one of its best months ever. The Montreal-based app saw a 116% increase in tweets featuring links to its short animations, called Cines, on Jan. 18. That came courtesy of the hit USA Network show Suits, which rolled out a contest asking viewers to submit their best Cines.
You couldn’t fault Cinemagram for being a little annoyed, however, when Vine was launched last Friday. According to PeerIndex, Vine-based tweets matched Cinemagram’s tweets-per-week score in a single weekend:
Of course, it helps that Vine is owned by Twitter. But the parent company has done surprisingly little to promote the service. There was no splashy launch event, and no media tie-ins on the scale of the Suits deal.
