Twitter’s Vine is fine for random sharing of six-second videos and today they issued an interesting new update promising to make embedding own or someone else’s clips easy as a pie. Unfortunately, that’s not the case.
The new version won’t let you just grab an embed code in-app. For reasons beyond our comprehension, the software sends you to a special web page where the embed code can be created.
It’s not the end of the world, but the solution is cumbersome and inelegant, though it works.

You probably heard that Twitter last week launched a brand new app, Vine, which lets you share short six-second clips. You also may have read an article laying out how Apple pulled the 500px photo sharing app (it’s much like Instagram on steroids minus low-res pet and food snaps) because its built-in search could expose users to nude images. If Apple wants to stay true to its form, then it could as well yank the Vine app from the App Store because the blogosphere lit up this morning with reports of Vine inadvertently recommending pornographic content which surfaced in users’ stream upon launching the app… Read More
