Twitter released a new application for quick video sharing, and the app may already be butting heads with rival Facebook.
Twitter on Thursday officially launched the mobile service called Vine, which lets users easily capture and share short looping videos with a few swipes of your finger on a smartphone.
Since Vine is a stand-alone application, users are encouraged to share posts to Twitter and Facebook to capture more views. But Facebook apparently has blocked Vine from being able to find user's Facebook friends on the new service.
It's not clear if this was a deliberate Facebook move, or a technical glitch.
While not commenting specifically on Vine, a Facebook spokesperson pointed to a new post today on its developer blog, which clarifies its platform policies.
"For a much smaller number of apps that are using Facebook to either replicate our functionality or bootstrap their growth in away that creates little value for people on Facebook, such as not providing users an easy way to share back to Facebook, we've had policies against this that we are further clarifying today," according to the company blog post.
