Have you heard about Vine? It’s Twitter’s new video service. You get to record up to 6 seconds of video and post it to social feeds (Twitter, Facebook) without the use of a third-party uploading service like YouTube.

Vine has signalled Twitter’s intention to start experimenting with other forms of media. It’s a separate app. All you do is touch the screen to record. When you take your finger off the screen it stops.

Vine says “They’re little windows into the people, settings, ideas and objects that make up your life. They’re quirky, and we think that’s part of what makes them so special.”
