Twitter is bringing its short video sharing service, Vine, to wrists across the globe today with its first Apple Watch app.

Vine for Apple Watch brings two feeds to users — favorites and featured — which allows you to catch up on clips from favorite creators, as well as watch featured videos that are handpicked from channels across the network.

Old videos get new life with Vine update



Since debuting in early 2013, Vine has been a social network all about capturing moments in the actual moment, but starting today the Twitter-owned app is finally letting users upload old videos, opening the floodgates for the inevitable #latervine craze.

The Vine update now lets users import videos from their iPhone’s camera roll, six glorious seconds at a time, and you can even upload multiple videos at once, as long as they’re short enough.

Vine’s Own Take On Instagram Direct Is Here



Vine has added video messaging. After today’s update, video messages (or VMs) can be sent to friends on Vine or through SMS and email.

A six-second message can be sent to more than one person, but not as cleanly as Instagram Direct works. A new conversation thread will be opened for each person you send to, meaning you have to send the same video multiple times.

Vine Bans 6-Second Porn Epics

Twitter’s video sharing social network Vine will no longer tolerate porn.

In a new blog post, the company claimed that it has no problem with explicit sexual content on the Internet — they just prefer not to be the source of it.

“As we’ve watched the community and your creativity grow and evolve, we’ve found that there’s a very small percentage of videos that are not a good fit for our community,” Vine wrote.

Make Hand-Free Instagram Videos With iPhone Accessibility Features


I love the press-to-shoot feature of Instagram’s video mode: it stops you from making one long boring take to fill up that eight seconds or however long it is that you get. But maybe you want to make a boring one-shot clip, or you’re planning on making the world’s shortest remake of Hitchcock’s Rope. Whatever, this neat trick from Photojojo is for you.
