Twitter’s Vine app for iPhone trials verified accounts

Finding out who is legitimate on Twitter’s free Vine app is assisted with the six-second videos seen on verified Twitter accounts, giving users the opportunity to narrow down whether they’re run by a company or just some opportunistic individual. This has prompted Vine to try out different ideas to verify accounts with the addition of Twitter badges to cut down the amount of fakers and install more confidence with its users.

According to Vine’s co-founder and creative director, Rus Yusupov, the Twitter-verified badge-style stamp intends to be an ideal way to ascertain the legitimacy of high-profile so-called Viners. In an article on Mashable, high profile users will be able to tell the difference between fakers and the legitimate people they are searching for.

With not too much in the way of privacy settings, there is an option to create a video within the Vine app and share it with others confidentially, while users will also have the chance to send it to their friends directly from your iPhone or iPod touch Camera Roll. As time goes on, we can see that many new improvements will be contemplated in an aim to create a better app with various enhancements, and a new site called Vinepeek currently lets users view a real-time stream of vines. Although we must inform our readers that this site is unfiltered, so some adult content may make its way to you.

Last week we spoke about the Vine app eventually making its way to Android devices and even though this free application is currently only available on iOS, Vice President, Michael Sippey says this app has been considered for other platforms, therefore we expect this to make an appearance sometime soon. Do you feel Twitter’s Vine app will be more attractive once it is available on all platforms?
