Twitter’s Vine has grown from strength-to-strength since its launch in January of this year. From fairly humble beginnings, the short video sharing tool exploded to become the fastest-growing app in the world, and new features from Twitter have kept the platform nicely buzzing.
Good news. From tomorrow (December 20, 9am PST) vanity URLs will be launched for all verified accounts on Vine, with the service rolling out to all users from December 23.
