Vine is a very popular service with dedicated applications for all major platforms, including iOS, Android and Windows Phone. The application lets users create short looping videos and share them.
Recently, Vine announced that vanity URLs for the Twitter’s video sharing service will be available from December 23rd. Only people with verified Twitter account can get their vanity URL.
Starting Monday, December 23rd, Vine users will be able to register a vanity URL for their Vine profile (e.g. vine.co/TwitterForNews). Verified Twitter accounts will be able to register profile URLs starting 9 AM PST, Friday, December 20.
Like your Twitter profile, a vanity URL offers the ability to share profile pages easily like you can with a Twitter profile (e.g.twitter.com/TwitterForNews). Vine profile URLs are optional and can only be registered by an existing Vine user.
The Vine team will automatically reserve profile URLs that mirror verified Twitter @usernames. Even though the Vine team will reserve profile usernames, you must still claim the profile URL by registering it.
Vanity URL offers an easy way for users to share their profile with their friends. The company announced the team will automatically reserve a personalized URL for you that mirror you verified Twitter @usernames, but you still have to claim it. To do so, simply visit vine.co, login with your credentials or use your Twitter ID and you will be redirected to a page where you can register your vanity URL. It’s that simple.
