Twitter have acquired mobile phone video specialist software company Vine. Vine enables users to share short looping videos across Twitter and Facebook accounts, the iPhone App is free and available now.
They say ‘Vine: a mobile service that lets you capture and share short looping videos. Like Tweets, the brevity of videos on Vine (6 seconds or less) inspires creativity. Now that you can easily capture motion and sound, we look forward to seeing what you create. Posts on Vine are about abbreviation — the shortened form of something larger. They’re little windows into the people, settings, ideas and objects that make up your life. They’re quirky, and we think that’s part of what makes them so special.
Here’s the free Vine App
• You don’t need a Twitter account to use Vine (but signing up is a little quicker if you do!)
• After installing Vine on your device, you can sign up using an email address or sign in with your Twitter account.
