Vine has issued an update that will please power users, with a very important editing tool.
Vine, which was acquired by Twitter almost a year ago, has hit 40 million users. The company announced this milestone via a tweet earlier today. I was initially skeptic when Vine launched in January this year, but the app (which allows you to make six second videos) has genuinely emerged as a new kind of video art form and has even created its own set of Vine video stars.
If you were wondering how and why videos go viral, Twitter has the answer for you — it doesn’t really know. “There are no rules to “virality” — while some ignite, and spread like wildfire across the web, the growth of others is much more measured, like ripples spreading across a lake,” the company wrote in a blog post Monday. Bottom line: after all these years, content popularity on the internet is like playing the lottery — hey, you never know!
Vine has added some new features to the service, making uploads a little easier. But how is the service doing so far after the launch of video on Instagram?
Instagram provided some tips for users on Tuesday, showing them how to post better videos to the site. Less than a week after launch, users are complaining about video quality on the service.
Vine videos appear to be more popular than ever, according to a survey that looks how frequently they appear on Twitter.
Videos have only been on Instagram for about 24 hours, but already the company is highlighting the real-time nature of the new feature and sharing some stats on how it’s done.
In announcing its video app’s jump from iOS to Android, Twitter reveals the app has tallied 13 million users since its January introduction.
Is there a reason Vine videos are exactly six seconds long? Yes, and it has a lot to do with high profile court cases that almost destroyed hip hop music.
If you’re looking for the latest video clips from your favorite sports, you might soon find them on Twitter. The social media company has solidified a deal with ESPN that will let users check out the action via Twitter video clips.
