Twitter launches Vine – New Video Sharing App
Twitter has launched its very own video sharing service to go along with their main site. Named Vine, it aptly goes side by side with Twitter. The new service is designed to record and share short snippets of video content. ‘Vine’ clips are the video equivelant of a ‘Tweet’. The concept behind the service is to allow users to record video clips of up to six seconds in length that can then be shared with friends and followers via your social networks or embedded into tweets. The major difference between this service and a service such as YouTube is simply the length of time available to record your content which will be 6 seconds, yes, only 6 seconds.
It is an interesting move from Twitter, on one hand yes the time you are given is extremely short, but on the other hand Twitter is a quick and restricted service allowing you to post a ‘Tweet’ quickly to voice an opinion or talk to somebody. Both Twitter and now Vine will remove the need to waffle on or over explain something, offering more thought to be given to each post. Users of the service will agree that it is the quickness and ease of which you can create and share a video snippet which is the major plus point.
