With Instagram taking the world by storm, and subsequentlyselling to Facebook for $1 billion, the question on everyone’s minds has been who will be able to do the same thing with video?
Twitter’s been thinking this through for a while, proven by the acquisition of video-sharing app Vine in October.
The app isn’t built directly into Twitter, but rather acts as a standalone app.
It integrates with Twitter in the same way that Instagram does, except that Vine never turned off permissions randomly, meaning that Vine videos can be embedded directly in tweets, showing up in followers’ streams.
Vine videos can also show up in a separate Vine web page, like this one.
