Michael Sippe, Vice-President of Product at Twitter wrote in a blog post, “Like Tweets, the brevity of videos on Vine (6 seconds or less) inspires creativity. Now that you can easily capture motion and sound, we look forward to seeing what you create.”
Dom Hofmann, the co-founder and general manager of Twitter’s Vine, wrote: “Twitter, we want to make it easier for people to come together to share and discover what’s happening in the world. We also believe constraint inspires creativity, whether it’s through a 140-character Tweet or a six-second video.”
