Animated GIFs and videos now auto play as seen on timelines on Twitter, whether or not they are viewed on the web or via Twitter's mobile app for the iOS platform. This means that any GIF, video, or Vine that has been uploaded natively to Twitter will now play automatically as users scroll through timelines (similar to how Facebook handles videos in its pages). As for Android users, the social media giant is currently working on a version that works on the Android platform, and it will be out soon.
Who would have thought that six-second videos could be so addicting? Well, a lot of people would think that a few years ago. But after Vine was launched in 2012, the short video sharing platform has since become a hit, especially among millennials. If you are one of those who can not get enough of Vines, how can you keep track of the latest videos from Zach King or Will Sasso?
Fortunately, the Vine app now allows you to receive notifications on your smartphone whenever a Vine artist you follow uploads new content. You just need to click the new start on the right side part of your account profile page.
What is so special about 6-second looping videos? Nothing much, but if they are made by somebody as creative as Zach King or as funny as Jerome Jarre, they can be addictive. No wonder then that Vine, the video-sharing and social network that publishes these very short clips, have gone on to amass 40 million users last year, no doubt drawn by its thriving community of clever Vine creators. Now, users have more time to enjoy their favorite Vine stars because the Vine app for iOS has now been updated to allow viewers to follow entire Vine channels (such as Music or Comedy) to get the most interesting editor-picked video loops in their main feeds. Also, the Vine app is now optimized for the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. Which means that users will be able to enjoy all the looped videos they can get through the devices' 4.7- and 5.5-inch display screens, respectively.
