The 100 Best Vine Accounts (Viners) Of 2015

Hey, I’m Chris. I wrote this article and I’m also the founder and Editor of DailyTekk. Lets connect on Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and YouTube. Check back daily!

This is the Vine list to end all Vine lists—the one that actually counts. So far this year DailyTekk has rounded up and ranked the 100+ best Instagrammers, the 100 best YouTubers, the 100 best Pinners and the 100 best blogs and websites of 2015. Today we conquer curate Vine, the site where people cram as much creativity, humor, information or idiocy into 6-second videos as humanly possible. And I will say this: Viners, you have a very, very unique community. It’s so different than the other social networks I just listed. The amount of effort that you have put into these short videos is nothing short of astounding. Kudos.

Real quick: go behind the scenes of DailyTekk on Instagram (@DailyTekk is brand new with totally exclusive pics and videos).

But I will also say this: many of the top Vine “stars” are… lame (and missing from this list). 14-year-olds scaring their moms over and over again gets old fast. People being jerks or acting sleazy? Miss me with that. So I spent a TON of time sifting through crappy accounts (some with millions of subscribers, mind you) to find people who were creative, authentic, nice, talented, generally positive and didn’t appear to have to resort to cheapness to get views (you know what I’m talking about). The following list is what I came up with. Did I leave anyone out that should make next year’s list (given the criteria above)? Leave a comment!

  • I think KC James and Vincent Marcus fit the criteria and would make a nice addition.

    • Thanks for adding. Amazing stuff. Definitely needs to be on next year’s list.

    • Sounds to me like vulgarity (or lack thereof) played a part in who was selected. But I agree Logey Dogey is great.

  • Thanks for including me on the list – what a cool surprise!

  • It was nice to see that this wasn’t a list of pop page viners. I saw some great viners I adore on this list. Though I tend to agree that many were overlooked due to, perhaps, more “sweary” content. I can’t even describe it any better. Plus, isn’t this just one person’s opinion?

  • He only uses Vine for uploading videos he’s created using other applications, but Zack King is “Vine personified?” … Granted, his content is clever, creative, visually spectacular, and I’ve got nothing against the guy — but putting him in the #1 spot just for uploading his After Effects projects hurts the validity of your list (imho). There are so many great names on here of Viners who are Viners because they create using Vine. Very happy to see a number of friends make it in! 🙂 … Nevertheless, quite disappointed by the top choice.

  • Some great viners here. I’d add namestoocommon, keelayjams, zgilmartin, jach king (?), Avery Munson, RE Medlin (best ever, though not active), Pete Heacock and Marlo meekins, among quite a few others

  • Wow! This is a great list with some AWESOME talent. I am honored to have been squeezed in…very cool! Thanks for creating this.

  • I’m glad to see Maris Jones on the list. Such great material.

    Two of my favourite accounts are –

    It Came From The VCR : vine://user/979468098845683712

    OG VHS: vine://user/980543991768670208

    They both post material from old VHS tapes, both pre- and home recorded.

    And I’m glad you ignored the accounts which are lowbrow. They’re not popular because people actually like them; they’re popular because people want to be seen liking them. Sort of like a teenager filling his iPod with every Eminem track ever made. As if he really likes them all. Give me a break!

  • Glad to see some good friends in here! Fun list! If lack of swearing keeps you off the list I’ll never be here, but I don’t think it does. Tyler, Derp, CCD, Tzaddi, Kathy…I have never heard them swear! ?? if they ever have a top 100 vine couples, my wife and I better be on there ?
