Twitter launches Vine app for iPhone, iPod touch

updated 01:10 pm EST, Thu January 24, 2013

Looping videos display inline with tweets

Twitter has launched a first-party version of Vine, an app for the iPhone and iPod touch that it bought the rights to in 2012. The app is similar to ones like glmps, letting users shoot small, looping videos that can be shared with others via a native social network. Vine posts can also be shared on Twitter and Facebook feeds, and any content linked in tweets can be opened inline on the web.

Vine Twitter posts link back to the domain. Each clip also contains audio, although sound is off by default. The Vine app and service are free and support unlimited uploads. People shooting with the app must have an iPhone 3GS or better.
