Vine: Twitter style video social network
The immediacy of information is what has made Twitter one of the social networks most followed and used. However, it seems not to be sufficient for its creators, who have acquired a new independent social network Twitter but it has a lot to do with it. It is called Vine and focuses on the publication of videos with short duration. All to follow in the footsteps of its older sister but with content that Twitter can not produce by itself: the videos.
Vine is only available for iPhone and iPod Touch, but is expected to reach Android very soon. You do not need an account with Twitter to use Vine rather you just have to create your own space independently adding a username and password. After that you can use this videos social network without any restrictions.
You need to press the button on the top right corner to start recording. At this point it should be noted that the process is not automatic but you must press on the screen to resume the recording, pausing automatically if you lift a finger. This allows you to capture multiple streams without a video editor, getting a curious montage at the end. After that, you just have to choose how to share social networks (Vine, Facebook and of course Twitter) and add the relevant labels.
The issue of labels is importance for searching new videos from the tab you can choose what you find: nature, food, tutorials to learn how to do something, sports, etc. All with the already charismatic asterisk before the word, brand of Twitter.
Vine further emphasizes its home page or wall. It is very similar to that seen in Instagram, you see the latest videos from the people you follow. What is surprising is that, as you move across the screen, the video starts playing automatically and sound, requiring only move up or down with your finger to find all content. And, of course, you can always give love (smiley face icon) or add a comment.
In short, a social network most curious that also could be very important in the future of Twitter. And finally this social network has its own storage space, their reliance on YouTube or Vimeo to save and publish your own videos. Although for now remain independent from each other, only giving the option to use the Twitter account to register Vine.
Meanwhile, users of iPhone can download application for free through App Store.
