Vine and Twitter have launched an update to make it easier for people to find and follow their favorite accounts across both social networks.

With the new update, users that have connected their Twitter and Vine accounts will have their Twitter account appear on their Vine profile and other areas of the app. What's more, people will be able to search for specific Twitter handles to find and confirm the same user on Vine. In fact, when someone taps on a Twitter username, they will go straight to that person's Twitter account and will be able to follow that person.

Moreover, a new Twitter setting lets creators choose to show their Vine account on their Twitter profile. With this update, Twitter profiles will display attached Vine accounts with the account's number of total loops. When that link it tapped, people are redirected to the user's account on Vine.

It is also important to note that Vine has updated its profiles to show each account's total loops (the same number shown on connected Twitter accounts). Loops are counted every time a Vine is watched within Vine's mobile apps and website, as well as on embeds across the Web.

"As people make great Vines that others love and want to watch, those creators get more and more loops. By surfacing that number to the world, anyone can quickly get a sense of that creator and the impact of their Vines," Vine said in its announcement.

The updates are available on the latest versions of Vine for iOS and Twitter for iOS and Android. According to the company, the update will be arriving on the Vine app for Android soon.
