Twitter announced on Thursday a new mobile service called Vine, which allows users to create and share looping videos.
"Like Tweets, the brevity of videos on Vine (6 seconds or less) inspires creativity," the company said in an official blog post. "Now that you can easily capture motion and sound, we look forward to seeing what you create."
Here's an example of how it works:

Vine is available as a separate app, free for download on iPhone and iPod touch devices via the Apple App Store. It's exclusively on mobile for now.
"We're working now to bring it to other platforms, so stay tuned for that," the company added.
