Rumors have been circulating for months that Twitter was planning to release a video sharing application for mobile devices. After all, if something’s good enough for Facebook, it’s clearly good enough for Twitter. Vine, the application in question, is now available for free on the App Store.
Bizarrely, the application isn’t released under the Twitter moniker; instead its developer is listed as Vine Labs, Inc. The idea behind Vine is to capture short, looped videos and then sharing it online with friends, family, and your social networks. It’s a neat concept, and it’s a lot like Instagram, but for short snippets of video.
We’re going to spend some time with it and let you know our thoughts once we’ve actually come up with something articulate.
