Vine users who attempted to find Facebook friends on Friday received an error message stating that Twitter‘s new mobile app is not authorized to make the request. This is the latest apparent rift between the two social media rivals.
Earlier this week, Twitter launched Vine, a free iOS app that allows iPhone and iPad users to create and post very short videos. Twitter hinted that an Android version could be in the works.
Twitter, which is primarily known for its 140-characters tweets, has supported embedded YouTube videos since 2008, but its launch of Vine marks the first time it will host video content directly. As with tweets, the videos will need to be short — a mere 6 seconds.
“Six seconds is too short for anything truly substantive,” said Greg Sterling, principal analyst at Sterling Market Research, “but there’s more information that can be conveyed by video, even in that short time frame, vs. a still photograph.”

The app launched yesterday morning, and it only lasted three hours before Facebook pulled access to its data. The app lets you search across Instagram, Foursquare,Twitter, and earlier in the day, Facebook. You can ask questions like “What are sushi places my friends like?” and it will provide you with a list of restaurants approved by your buddies. The company warned that it was purely experimental and that you’d only be able to ask it questions about places, music, and news at this point.
But Facebook recently released it own search called Graph Search, which does exactly this, only it pulls exclusively from Facebook’s data.
