Twitter Releases Video-Sharing App Vine

Twitter released a new application video sharing for quick video sharing, Twitter on Thursday officially launched this  mobile service called “Vine”, Vine lets users easily capture and share short looping videos with a few swipes of your finger on a smartphone. “Vine” was a purchase rather than something homegrown, and sits mostly on its own. Twitter acquired Vine lat last year.



But Facebook  has blocked Vine from being able to find user’s Facebook friends on the new service. however t’s not clear if this was a deliberate Facebook move, or a technical glitch.

“For a much smaller number of apps that are using Facebook to either replicate our functionality or bootstrap their growth in away that creates little value for people on Facebook, such as not providing users an easy way to share back to Facebook, we’ve had policies against this that we are further clarifying today,” according to the company blog post.

Vine post displays up to six seconds of video. Users can record motion and sound and instantly share their creations on Vine’s Apple iPhone and iPod Touch applications.

“Posts on Vine are about abbreviation — the shortened form of something larger,” writes Vine co-founder Dom Hoffman. Whether it’s through a 140-character Tweet or a six-second video.
