The Vine App: My New Favorite Time Waster

Jan 28, 2013 | Filed in Blogs | 0 Comments

By now, some of you may have heard about Vine, which was recently acquired by Twitter and launched a few days ago.

It’s a social media site designed to share quick videos. Similar to Twitter’s limit of 140 characters per post, Vine only lets you share up to 6 seconds of video.

It’s mostly a time waster at this point, but it’s fun to get a glimpse into someone’s life through a brief clip. And it’s oddly entertaining to see what people come up with.

I’ve played around and posted two videos: One of me discovering a phone book on the front porch today. (They still make those?) http://vine.co/v/bJv0LQjnhwP

And one of the book I’m currently reading, More Tales of the City. It’s one of my favorite books and it’s been awhile since I read it. It still has the magic and nobody can tell a story like Armistead can. Here’s that video: http://vine.co/v/bJvlYghP3bL

Since there isn’t a direct way to link to my Vine feed yet, you can follow me through Twitter and I’ll post new videos there. https://twitter.com/nathanexposed. Please let me know if you join Vine too.

The Vine app is available here: https://itunes.apple.com/app/vine-make-a-scene/id592447445

You can also go to http://vinepeek.com/ and get a continuous feed of random Vine posts as they show up. No software or Twitter ID required.
