Twitter's just released Vine, a video sharing app designed to make it easy to create and embed short snippets of high-quality, low-bandwidth video on the web. The shortcomings of animated GIFs, and the bloatedness of most web video, leave a poorly-served middle-ground that it intends to fill—but only, for the time being, if you have an iPhone or iPod touch.

    Given that “high-quality” has another relevant meaning, I’d say the jury’s still out on that one.

    I couldn’t find this when I searched the App Store on my iPhone, but when I fired up the ol’ steam powered desktop computating machine, iTunes was able to find it and it downloaded itself onto my iPhone. Strange eh?

    6 seconds of video max?

    I think Keek is closer to the ideal “Video Twitter” than this is.
