SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - Twitter on Thursday launched Vine, a service that lets people share video snippets from iPhones or iPod touch devices.

Perpetually looping videos clips up to six seconds each can be shared using Vine or easily embedded in "tweets" fired off at the globally popular messaging service Twitter.

"Like tweets, the brevity of videos on Vine inspires creativity," Twitter vice president of product Michael Sippey said in a blog post.

A free Vine application became available worldwide at Apple's App Store on Thursday, according to Vine co-founder and general manager Dom Hofmann.
