YouTubers Versus Viners: Twitter Is Battleground For New Media Street Fights

More and more people are turning to Twitter as a means not to communicate information, but to shit-talk the royal hell out of others and engage in digital cat fights that otherwise wouldn’t happen.

Apparently some YouTubers didn’t exactly like that or don’t care for Vine invading their turf. Some tough talk got thrown around and the usual slew of YouTubers who get involved with stuff like this, got mentioned as being involved. #shanedawson, #tremelvin.

Don’t expect it to be the last or the worst of the wars between the two social media camps either — as Vine grows in popularity and the money being invested into the two worlds increases, eventually we’re going to see a really lame new media version of the East Coast/West Coast rap feud. Instead of somebody getting killed though, I imagine there will be like a dance-off or something.
