With former South African President Nelson Mandela still in hospital for a recurring lung infection, users of Twitter’s video sharing site Vine have created clips honouring the former statesman.
Some users have bypassed traditional channels of posting messages, like tweets and Facebook, to honour Mandela. Vine allows for 6-second videos to be uploaded and this has resulted in a number of imaginative and creative postings.
Twitter initially launched its Vine offering for iOS devices, but a few weeks ago the company unleashed the Android version, which attracted a flurry of new users.
The quicker the technology grows and more users access the service, the more creative the videos have become.
Since its launch on the Android marketplace, the app has been downloaded more than a million times. In April, Vine also became the number one most downloaded free app within the iOS App Store.
Have a look at the videos below to see just how Vine users are honouring Mandela.
