A few times a year, the Internet is taken by storm with news of a new and flashy mobile app – promising to change the life of it’s users (presumably) for the better. This is the case with Twitter’s new Vine app, which allows it’s users to record 6 seconds of video and publish it for their social followers to consume.
Brands and users have adapted to the app virally, if only to secure their all important ‘handle name’. Afterall, no one wants to be stuck with a handle like ‘JohnDoe56237126′, do they?
Because there’s been some really fantastic creativity from North American brands, we thought we’d do a little digest for you of some notable posts.
