Twitter’s UK director Bruce Daisley has set tongues wagging on the tech blogs with a Vine clip that appears to show a recorded-music soundtrack. The video, which he posted yesterday, shows him tapping at a keyboard while a song plays – but as TheNextWeb pointed out, the song doesn’t skip when the video cuts between shots, so it appears to have been added to the video rather than simply recorded in the background.
Vines being six seconds long, it’s unclear whether there are licensing deals involved in any such feature, or whether the music is being pulled in from another source (SoundCloud, maybe?). Or even whether Vine is following Snapchat in enabling people to overlay music from their device on a video that they have shot. Either way, Daisley’s title for his clip – ‘Test’ – indicates that the feature may not be quite ready for a public debut just yet.
