Vine, Twitter’s video sharing application, has just received one of its biggest update since the initial release. Those of you hoping that it would increase the video time limit are going to be disappointed, but those of you not worried about that will most likely love the update. In this update, you will get things such as “revining” (yes, I guess that’s going to be a thing now), channels, protected accounts, and new capture modes. Here is the full change log:

Vine needed this update if it wanted to compete with the new Instagram Video feature that was launched by Facebook recently. Instagram, unlike Vine, offers a great video stabilization feature and filters for you video (if you are into that kind of thing). Also, the limit on those videos are 15, not 6 seconds. However, Twitter is obviously not giving up with Vine. You can get this app for free if you don’t have it already, or get the update here: Vine.
