Vine is a video-sharing startup that was bought by Twitter in late 2012. It  enables users to embed short videos into their tweets, making the social network more multi-dimensional.

Advertisers could use the videos for short promos, while users could use the service like a video-based Instagram to quickly share creations with family, friends, and followers.
