Vine invites users to register vanity URLs

Twitter’s Vine app is allowing users to register their vanity URLs as it prepares to shift onto the web.

 

Vine's website is now inviting Vine users to reserve their vanity URLs - because online profiles are coming soon. 

Twitter, which owns Vine, announced this in an email to journalists, The Next Web reported.

"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," it quoted Twitter as saying in its announcement. 

Vine is a mobile app owned by Twitter that allows users to create and post short video clips with a maximum clip length of six seconds. 

Previously only accessible through its iOS, Android, and Windows apps, Vine is shifting onto the web. 

However, similar to how the Instagram website works, Vine users won't be able to upload videos through Vine's website. 

Web profiles will let users scan their account history as well as browse through their timeline and other user pages.

Verified account signups are currently live although the race for everyone else begins on Monday, December 23. 

If you're already a registered user of the Vine app and want to reserve a custom URL, just go to Vine's website and sign in with your Vine credentials or via Twitter to get started.
