Twitter launches video sharing app

Twitter's just released Vine, a video sharing app designed to make it easy to create and embed short snippets of high-quality, low-bandwidth video on the web. The shortcomings of animated GIFs, and the bloatedness of most web video, leave a poorly-served middle-ground that it intends to fill—but only, for the time being, if you have an iPhone or iPod touch.


  1. Given that “high-quality” has another relevant meaning, I’d say the jury’s still out on that one.

  2. I couldn’t find this when I searched the App Store on my iPhone, but when I fired up the ol’ steam powered desktop computating machine, iTunes was able to find it and it downloaded itself onto my iPhone. Strange eh?
