Twitter is today launching Vine — an application designed to allow for the taking (and sharing) of short looping videos. Vine was originally acquired by Twitter some months ago, and was ultimately designed to facilitate the sharing of videos which are 6 seconds or less.
In celebration of the app’s official launch on the App Store today, the company published a number of examples of the app in-action — one embedded example of which is shown below.

Today, we’re introducing 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.
- Unlimited uploads and free
- Instantly post videos on Vine, then share to Twitter and Facebook (more coming soon!)
- Find, follow, and interact with people close to you
- Explore trending posts, featured hashtags and editor’s picks
- And so much more
Perfectly suited to the service’s 140-character personality, Vine is a FREE download from the iTunes App Store. The app supports iPhone and iPod touch – natively.
