Twitter may soon launch its very own video hosting service named Vine as the company’s CEO himself has featured a video using the service in one of his latest tweets.
On Wednesday, Dick Costolo sent out a tweet saying: “Steak tartare in six seconds. http://vine.co/v/bOIqn6rLeID via @dhof”
Following the link brings you to Vine and the video. It’s titled “#howto make steak tartare”. If you notice, it uses a hashtag which was popularized by Twitter.
Clicking around Vine, it’s homepage says: “Vine – The best way to see and share life in motion. Create beautiful looping videos in a fun way, then share with your friends and family. – Coming soon.”
With Costolo tweeting a video hosted on the site, that launch may really be soon.
Twitter, according to All Things D, bought Vine last year. It’s a video clip company “that never launched”, the site says.
Here’s Costolo’s tweet featuring a Vine clip.
