SOCIAL MEDIA NEWS: Twitter launches video app

Twitter has launched Vine, a new mobile service, allowing users to capture then embed video into Tweets.

The videos can only be six seconds long and run on a continuous loop. The Vine app is available for free on the App store, Twitter is working to make it available on other platforms.

In a blog post Michael Sippey, VP of product for Twitter, said, “Like Tweets, the brevity of videos on Vine (six seconds or less) inspires creativity. Now that you can easily capture motion and sound, we look forward to seeing what you create.”

Users are currently reporting bugs with the service at the moment. The social network bought developer Vine Labs last year.

Will you be taking advantage of the new development?
