I have only made this blog title longer because I have not had the time to make it shorter

By Paul Tocatlian

So what do you think of the 140-character limit Twitter imposes on Tweets? Granted, sometimes it’s hard to fit what you want to say in 140 characters, but you find a way. In fact, you need to see the beauty of this limit as it keeps us from rambling and makes us concise in our communications.

The same can be said of Vine and its six-second video limit. Sometimes it’s hard to depict your ideas in six seconds, but you find a way. In fact, artists, actors, billionaires, celebritiescomedians,  corporationskidsmagicians, and musicians use this time constraint to push their creativity.

I have come to enjoy trying to express ideas succinctly on Twitter and Vine. Sometimes I wish emails were limited to 140-characters and phone calls to six seconds! So in the spirit of brevity, let’s keep this blog post short and jump straight to some of my six-second recordings.

Please note that these videos are best watched using the Vine app on your smartphone or tablet, as the app will seamlessly loop through the videos over and over again. The Web links below will play the videos, while briefly pausing before restarting. Either way, enjoy!
