Twitter’s Vine Should Be Coming to Android Soon


Back in January, we saw an interesting new twist come to Twitter, with the release of the first Vine app. Vine let iOS users upload short video clips (we’re talking six seconds short) and embed them in their tweets, adding a new multimedia element to the text and static pictures Twitter already had. At first, we weren’t sure if this was going to be anything more than a gimmick, but a lot of users have been coming up with some interesting content that’s winning us over. Now, we knew that Vine would eventually come to other platforms, but back when it launched no one was saying which, nor when. While we still don’t have a hard date, Vine has now confirmed that an Android version is due “soon.”

Assuming the Android port is even half as successful as the iOS version, we hope Vine will think about hitting some other smartphone platforms beyond the two heavyweights.

Have you started following any Twitter users who are really killing it with their Vine creations? Let us know who we should be checking out in the comments.
