Twitter Media Grid: A place for all your Vines, and Videos, and Photos

Jut saw this from my friend CC Chapman:



Update:
After I posted this, I started looking around to see if there was a new Twitter menu to get to this Media Grid. Yup. It's there on the left side bar on the Twitter profile page.

It's a link called See all photos and videos. It's been there for a while. I've never used it. ;-)

Here's my Media Grid:

This is cool, and needed.

I have a place for my photos: Flickr.

I have a place for my Videos: YouTube.

A PLACE FOR VINE VIDEOS
But I don't have a place for my Vine videos. Since twitter rolled out Vine, I've been able to share Vine videos, but have only been able to share them one at a time, by tweeting them, posting to Facebook, or embedding them.

Then, the only way to find one of your Vine videos, on the web, was to search back through one of those places to find it.

TWITTER VINE EMBED
Before Media Grid I would have had to search my twitter stream to find this Vine from Easter:



NEW VINE DIRECT EMBED
Now I can use Media Grid to find a recent Vine and embed it with the new Vine embed code:



Earlier: Now you can Embed Vines

NICE START, NEEDS FILTERS
The Media Grid is a nice start for having a page that I can point people to.

It just needs to have a filter for types of content, so a visiter can select: All Photos, All Videos, or Vine Videos.

What do you think?

  1. It was fun to stumble upon today for sure.

    Of course the second thing I noticed is that it of course does not include Instagram photos which is no surprise.

    Nice to be able to with a single URL see what people/brands are sharing.

    1. Oh right. No Instagram.

      Thanks.

  2. Everyone, I can't figure out how the grid's fed and more importantly...how do I change or influence it. My media grid contains things which I don't have any idea how to they got there and I'd like to get them off as I feel that they're unprofessional. Any suggestions?
