Twitter’s video service Vine enabled vanity URLs for verified accounts on December 20 and wasn’t due to open up sign-ups to those of us without the special little blue check mark until Dec. 23.
Twitter Gives an Early Christmas to Everyone
It seems Twitter decided to bring Christmas to us all early as I, an unverified user, secured my vanity URL just a few minutes ago.
Although Twitter will automatically reserve profile URLs that “mirror verified Twitter @usernames”, you’ll still need to register your profile in order to claim it. You may even wish to choose a Vine URL that is different to your Twitter @name.
A Vine Profile Page Too?
In Vine’s email to journalists it suggested that with the vanity URL we’ll also be getting a profile page that we can easily share with others:
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.
I suggest you don’t delay and go straight to vine.co and login to claim your own vanity url now.
To celebrate, I’ve compiled a bunch of Vintuitive Vine videos of a musical nature.
