The report quoted Matt McGee, editor of Marketing Land as saying:"Instagram hasn't actually seen a huge uptick in Twitter sharing since its video launch. The number of shares over the past few days is similar to early and mid-June. But Vine sharing is way down in the last week."

Vine's fame has been short-lived, with Twitter launching it only in January 2013 - where users are able to upload and share six-second long clips which play in a loop.

But videos on Instagram (which is owned by Facebook) can be up to 15 seconds long and filters can be added to change the colouring.

According to the report, Twitter declined to comment.
