Watch as the vine becomes the next big tool collects information

What if the Arab Spring, or Hurricane sand were vined?

Much has been made over the years about how Twitter is one of the world's most important new communication tools breaking news. But with the launch of the vine, Twitter has expanded its control of citizen journalism in the video?

So far, most of the conversation about the vineyard has been around service capability to capture unusual moments of life, or as a way to create interesting (and sometimes art) stop-motion video. And of course, everyone knows there's a lot of porn to find.

Today, I met my first use of the vine as a tool for gathering information - a video of a fire in a San Francisco neighborhood - and it struck me immediately that it is a future for the vineyard that I had not even heard people discuss, as well as points of Wired, there have been cases of people who use vine to document a water main failure of metro San Francisco.

The possibilities are enormous. Since the vine is so easy to use - especially if you're just shooting six seconds of uninterrupted video - there are millions of people who, while witnessing a sort of breaking news or a remarkable situation could leave their smart phone, run the application, and quickly shoot and upload a video. For now, the vine is only available for the iPhone and iPod Touch, but Twitter certainly wil get an Android version before too long, as well as versions for Windows phones, and possibly other platforms. And it will simply extend the potential scope of vines, although this means accidents, police misconduct, fires, demonstrations, riots, and almost everything is fair game for anyone to post vine and spread via social networks like Twitter and Facebook. For the citizen journalist - or a professional journalist - have the ability to so easily post a video of a certain type of situation of interest is a potentially valuable tool. Agencies and professional press, access to these videos could be invaluable.

Other video services short form
Of course, the vine is not the only application available video. Others, such as Any, Cinemagram and YouTube for some time been creating and sharing these videos quite simple. YouTube told CNET that 7000 hours of video are uploaded related news every day, and more than 350,000 new videos or oriented policy were downloaded from Syria in 2012. For its part, Everything has been used to varying degrees by quite a few newspapers, including "The Wall Street Journal," NBC-TV, Sky, and many others, including CNET.

But it seems that if the vine takes off, its ease of use, and links to Twitter, could be a tool of choice for the display - and perhaps most importantly, sharing instantly - Quick bites this video happens in the world.

"The next Zapruder film could come from the vine," said Steve Rubel, executive vice president and media analyst for Edelman. "It's an interesting concept, and we do not know what will happen to that there is an event like this. But as the Arab Spring demonstrated the power of Twitter [for the dissemination of images of interest], there will be something that happens, something that is vital and continues for a period of time and affects many people. [Hurricane] Sandy is a perfect example. "

To Rubel, what distinguishes the vine is distinguished from other video tools Abridged ties with Twitter and how high profile vine has already become. And whether or not for Twitter vine to be used in this way, the video application seamlessly integrates Twitter into being "such a water cooler for what is current in the news and culture," said Rubel.

Others clearly agree.

"Think about the impact Twitter has done so far on reports in real time - makes everyone everywhere an eyewitness who can share instant text or a photo with the world," writes Jeff Sonderman for Poynter when vine was launched last month. "Now, think about how this effect is amplified when the public can easily start sharing videos of the same events. On the one hand, the videos have the potential to be more realistic graphics or a still photo. It's good when you want to bring the world closer to about a news event. '

Is this a good thing?
But in his article, Sonderman also raised concerns about whether this kind of citizen journalism is a good thing, whether the video documentation of events such as the shooting last August of the Empire State Building would have been too much to take .

Sonderman also wonder if there are ethical questions about tools like vines on how and when it is appropriate to use these tools in news reporting.

"At the same time, [Vine] gives journalists fewer options for balancing ethical concerns," wrote Sonderman. "For example, with a new picture, you can quickly crop or blur specific areas of the public should not see . In the case of a video, it is much harder to do. "

To be sure, it is very early days, and until today I had not seen a single instance of the vine used in anything that resembles a capacity of collecting information. But everything has to start somewhere. So do not consider this use of Twitter vines on the acquisition of video service last fall? It's hard to say, and Twitter has not responded to a request for comment for this story.

But given the importance of Twitter has become in any event news, it is hard to imagine the company has not seen the potential of citizen journalism of the vine, although so far, c is an angle that was barely mentioned, either by the company or in the great conversation about the tool and its use.

"There will be a moment Zapruder film," said Rubel, "or as the Miracle on the Hudson, which has TwitPic on the map, and told, shoot, Twitter is for photos. There will be something, a kind of moment of interest, and that [the vine] become the iconic image "of the event. Twitter has not yet issued downloads or use numbers.
