Twitter's Vine now spreads to Android

Vine logoAs the Twitter social network steadily tries to overtake the world, its Vine video sharing service is now spreading like a kudzu vine -- even if you are miles above the Mason-Dixon line! Today Twitter announces that the service is spreading to Android, the largest mobile operating system around.

"Starting today, [Android owners] can begin to shoot, share and watch short looping videos. We’ve been looking forward to this day, and we’re excited to get the app into your hands", says Twitter's Sara Haider.

Twitter's Vine now spreads to Android

Vine already has 13 million users thanks to earlier iPhone integration. The app inserts your videos right within a tweet, making it easy for followers to play it back, but it also promises a way to explore and discover popular posts and see what’s trending; as well as find friends and invite people you know to join.

Haider says that "though we’ve been very focused on releasing Vine for Android, we’ve continued to release updates and add new features to the iOS app. As a result, the two apps are not perfectly in sync, but that won’t be the case for long. Over the coming weeks, you’ll see frequent updates with new features -- including front-facing camera, search, mentions and hashtags, and the ability to share to Facebook -- as well as bug fixes and performance improvements".

Twitter continues to pull in more options, making it a one-stop shop for sharing as well as attempting to prevent users from heading elsewhere for features. Will it work?
