Clumsy Bieber! Justin took a tumble moments before a photoshoot this weekend, AND has the Insta-video to prove it! The Biebs teased fans with this tweet:If u didn't hear I fell down the stairs this morning. Check my Instagram for details. It was epic :) lol? Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) June 23, 2013 Interestingly, Vine downloads seem to already have started sliding in several key markets just a few days after Instagram?began?attacking it?directly. Last Thursday, Instagram added?a notably Vine-like video recording feature that was met with plenty of interest from users but still put Wall Street to sleep.?The popular, Facebook-owned?photo-sharing service now offers the ability to shoot and share 15-second video clips,?mimicking the 6-second clip-sharing service?that Vine pioneered last winter. Some industry observers?view the Instagram?attack?as?potentially fatal to Vine, while others see it as a lame copycat?move unlikely to hurt Vine's formidable momentum. According to Onavo, Vine is one of the most successful mobile apps in America in recent history,?converting over 10% of American iPhone?owners into active Vine users?in just half?a year.
