Three days ago Vine was launched, a six-second video creator social media app, acquired by Twitter.
This will open up creative ways for Twitter users to tell a short story visually, in addition to the brief 140-character micro-logging allotment they currently have.
Currently only available for iPhone and iPod Touch, Vine (@vineapp) hopes to have an Android version, in addition to bug fixes and enhancements shortly. It is currently available free at the App Store.
Jack Dorsey (@jack), Twitter creator and Square founder recently endorsed Vine by posting tweets utilizing Vine videos and stated on January 24, 2013 about Vine, “…This one’s going to be big.”
The user-generated looping videos are anticipated to only improve in time, after the initial novelty has worn off and learning curve overcome.
Below are some recent articles and links of interest, which review the app and explain how to use it, with several showing examples of the videos created with Vine.
