Vine Disables Twitter Sharing Just Hours After Launch

Earlier this afternoon, Twitter unveiled Vine, a standalone iOS app for the creation and sharing of short (six-second) video clips. A video sharing experience was rumored to be in the Twitter pipeline, and it looks like this is it. Vine allows users to take short videos, and then share them on Twitter (and Facebook, too). But for Twitter, it’s a way to enrich tweets.

Well, Vine is already broken. For the most part.

“We’re temporarily disabling Twitter and Facebook sharing. It should be back soon. Thanks for your patience,” said Vine in a tweet.

Of course, not being able to post the short videos to Twitter and Facebook doesn’t render the app completely useless, but it pretty much does.

They really need to get this thing fixed, as it’s really not what you’re looking for on launch day.
