Vine, Twitter’s micro-video social network, is perhaps the best form of entertainment for Generation Distraction. With a limit of 6 seconds per video, it’s easy for viewers to absorb a diverse array of content in just a few minutes. The time limit also forces Vine-makers to be concise with their creations. The result is a steady supply of some of the most hilarious, surprising and inventive mini-movies around.
To celebrate this relatively new media, we'll be doing a weekly compilation of our favorite Vines. This week we have everything from a grandma's reaction to eating sushi for the first time to a very dramatic dog and, of course, an alien having dinner. If you see something you like, we encourage you to follow its creator on Vine and if there’s something you don’t like, well, just wait a few seconds and it will be over.
