How To Make Great Vines
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Twitter!
Brands love Vine because they're six seconds of the brand connecting with the consumer.
Personally, I don't like Vine. Vines are too much like Flash to me. They're not easy to save like GIFs.
I prefer Animated GIFs.
But if you're going to Vine, here's a helpful tutorial on how to keep them interesting.
Maybe only a webdev cares about this... but they are BIZARRELY SLOW to load. :( 95% of the time I just give up.
Slow to load on the Web or slow to load on a Twitter client?
Uh... I can't say I've ever successfully loaded a Vine in a Twitter client? Actually it's been a while on the web too. They're just too slow for the payoff.
I feel that way about most links in Twitter clients, too. They're not optimized for speed.
They're optimized for keeping you there.
Keeping you there if you're mad is not a good strategic tradeoff.
I guess Twitter figures you have no other place to go.
