Vine has first service outage after being open for just 5 days

Vine experiences first service outage, only took 5 days from launch for it to happen

Twitter-like video sharing site Vine has experienced its first service outage after only being around for 5 days. Twitter launched Vine last Thursday to share short, 6-second looping videos. Vine, as an extension of Twitter, believes the limit on content forces users to have creativity.

Earlier today, Vine experience its first service outage, with most services being disabled and the app alerting users about the service interruption. Vine tweeted about the outage, saying the following: "Vine is experiencing a temporary service interruption. Thanks for your patience."

 

Vine has had several growing pains during these first five days. Porn instantly became a problem on the service, with one video even being promoted to an Editor's Pick. This resulted in Apple pulling it from the featured section of the App Store. Vine is now doing a better job censoring search terms.

 

The service has since returned for some users, though Vine/Twitter has yet to confirm that the service is back to being fully functional. If you're still having trouble with the service, let us know in the comments.
