FB, The Vine Feuding?

Hours after Twitter's six-second video hosting network The Vine launched, the "Find People" function started returning an error when searching Facebook. The function allows Vine users to find Facebook friends. The function continued working from Twitter but not from the new video sister site, leading some to speculate that the whole thing may have been caused by a simple glitch. Others noted that this is not the first time Twitter and Facebook have come to e-blows.

When Instagram was first purchased by Facebook, the photo service disabled Twitter cards integration. Twitter users could not see full images through the microblogging site, forcing them to visit Instagram directly. Twitter responded by disabling Instagram's "find people" function.
