I Saw it on the (Grape)Vine: Twitter’s New Baby


It’s a six second video app brought to you by Twitter. It’s a short (read: extremely short) video that’s on a loop. Why is this important? It hooks directly into your Twitter account and lets you start sharing right away. Of course, there are other apps that do the same thing, but this particular one is hot at the moment. I have used Cinegram in the past, but I like this one because more people are on it and, like I said, it’s the hot app of the moment so your videos are more likely to be viewed, especially if you hashtag (#) it properly!

Some ideas for #GenJ use:

– Video of your most recent clips

– Video of some production work – you at a computer, you at a coffee machine, you running around with a red pen

– Video of something you’re experiencing – graduations, parties, speakers.

Will you use #vine? How? Share your vines with us @SPJGenerationJ (#GenJ and #GenJVine) to help us see how you’re using it in the field!
