There’s a lot of buzz going around about Twitter’s new iPhone app Vine. It’s a social networking app that allows you to take a 6 second video and edit in-phone. Many believe that this is the next big thing in social sharing. There is much speculation as to what will make or break this app in the beginning stages of catching on (Mashable), but rather than being critical like I usually am, I’m going to focus on the positives.
This simple little idea allows anyone to create his or her own cinematic masterpiece… or videos of our very own Calia eating chocolate cream pie…
That’s what I like about this new app. The possibilities are endless. You can re-create your own version of the Harlem Shake sensation re-sweeping the nation as seen on illustrator / video animator Ian Padgham’s Twitter account @origiful [See it here]
You can get a little meta with your advertisements.
Or you can give a tour of Oniracom!
Sure, there are some kinks the developers need to fully work out (see porn fiasco here on TechCrunch).
But at the end of the day it’s truly a fun idea that has a lot of promise. It is my sincerest hope that this app takes off and gives us one more way to share what we eat for lunch with the rest of the world.
Now, just as an added bonus, here is a little video from 1895, when the big guns were speculating if this newfangled notion of moving images was going to be the next big thing.
