The 100 Best Vine Accounts (Viners) Of 2015

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!
