Vine in 2013
Of course with Thursday's Instagram news, all eyes turn to Vine, which is similar in a number of ways.
The general idea is to let users record six-second (or less) video clips and post them with the same following scheme as Twitter. In fact, Twitter user could simply sign into the service using their normal credentials, and post out Vines to their Twitter followers too.
Twitter bought Vine in late 2012 when it had just three employees and hadn’t even launched an app yet. That app came first to the iPhone in January of this year, followed by a version for Android in June.
