Twitter updated its Vine app for iOS yesterday, which is good news for owners of the new, larger-screened iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, as the app makes better use of their displays. But the more interesting feature from a Music Ally perspective is the ability for Vine users to follow channels, rather than just individual creators. Channels were introduced last year, allowing Viners to add their videos to categories including Comedy, Food, Science & Tech and Music & Dance, with those categories then browsable within the app’s Explore section. Now users can tap on a little plus button at the top of each channel’s feed to have its featured videos appear regularly in their home feed, alongside those of the users they follow. That should mean an even wider audience for musical Vines, which regularly notch up hundreds of thousands (or even millions) of loops.
