WeShow, Tencent’s Vine-like short video sharing app launched two months ago, released an update that, surprisingly, supports Sina Weibo connection and sharing onto the latter. It’s the first time I can recall that Tencent’s service supports a third-party social service. What’s more is it’s Sina Weibo, Tencent Weibo’s long-time direct competitor.

WeShow users now can invite friends on Sina Weibo and Tencent’s social services, social network Q-zone, mobile messaging app WeChat and microblogging service Tencent Weibo, to join it and share video clips to those platforms (see the screenshot below).
