Less than a week after Twitter launched its short video tool, it is curating some of the most interesting experiments with Vine. Vinepeek and Vineroulette also display short videos as they’re published. Newsrooms are using Vine to show personality, show studios and show process.

Rob Tornoe used it to show how a cartoon was created:


WVEC’s Mike Lopez showed viewers a live shot coming together:


WCNC used Vine to tell a 6-second version of a longer video story:

WCCO reporter Jason DeRusha used Vine to tease a newscast segment:
