Twitter has recently introduced Vine, which is essentially the video equivalent of the 140-character tweet. It lets you post 6-second video clips, and is available as a free iOS app for your iPhone or iPod.
I wasn’t entirely sure at first what you could do with video in only six seconds (or less). Then I saw these examples from the Twitter blog site and thought, hmmm, this could be cool. Consider it a new and intriguing creative challenge. Why not?
Will Vine stick? By some reports, it’s already the 6th most popular free download on the App Store. (And, big surprise, the porn industry was all over it within nano-seconds, according to the CBC.)
Is Vine a social app? A new marketing tool? A flash in the pan … or the next monster app? Me? I’m vine with it. (Ouch.) What do you think?
