Vine was a social media site oriented around looping video uploads, which must be no longer than 6 seconds each.
On August 14, 2014, a Vine account named TribeTwelve was created. The description says, "as above so below". The profile picture is a photo of Noah with a terrifying smile (most likely as Firebrand). The account, which is linked to Noah's Twitter, posted new tweets as new Vines were uploaded.
After discovering the account, Noah posted a tweet, saying that he was surprised with the Vine account, and that he didn't create it.
Vine was announced to be discontinued on October 27th, 2016. While new posts will not be made to Noah's Vine, the short videos still exist on the site for archival purposes.

[A brief shot of Milo's journal lying on a hardwood floor is seen before the camera rotates and speeds toward the black of the notebook. The video is pitch black for a few seconds while an ominous (currently unknown) music track plays. The journal is dropped on the floor and the camera cuts to an extreme closeup of the Severance symbol on the journal, and cuts quickly to another shot of the same symbol before the Vine loops over.]

[A dim shot of Firebrand's eye is shown, along with a shriek. Cut to a series of shots of fortune cookies shooting into various places in Noah's house, accompanied by what sounds like whispery, vacuum-like breathing. The cookies are seen shooting into a basket, a vase, a drawer, and under or alongside various pieces of furniture, including what appears to be Noah's bed. Cut to a shot of the floor, quickly panning to a fortune cookie laying on the ground. Jump cut as Milo's journal is dropped on the cookie. Cut to another dim shot of Firebrand's face, only the nose barely visible.]
Firebrand: [Whispering and echoing.] Go to sleep...
[Cut to a set of Firebrand's teeth grinning and opening as the speaker inhales sharply. The Vine loops over.]

[The camera pans up from the floor of Noah's house as Firebrand recording gasps. Cut to another floor shot in a different part of the house as the camera rounds a corner before stopping and quickly panning up. Jump cut to the same view. The camera pans back down to the floor; a very brief shot of the Severance symbol appears before the camera cuts, now facing the boardwalk, and pans back up. A strange "nyoom" sound is uttered by Firebrand behind the camera as the camera jump cuts its way down the path of the boardwalk. The camera quickly cuts to a shot against a bush before cutting to a shot of Firebrand's shadow as he tilts his head to the side.]
- The second and the third Vine's titles may be a reference to the Zalgo meme, born in the same place as the Slender Man, the site "Something Awful". This reference also appeared in the COMECLOSER video.
- The second Vine shows 10 fortune cookies, hidden in different places around Noah's house. Before the creation of the Vine, he posts few tweets regarding the cookies.
- The first vine has a slowed down version of "Every Breath You Take" by The Police playing in the background. The title of the vine "I'll be watching you" is lifted from a lyric from said song.
