How Writers & Readers Can Use Twitter’s Vine

Twitter introduced Vine last week, a way to quickly shoot, save and share six-second videos with your friends on Twitter.

Washington Post Book World fiction editor Ron Charles used Vine to create six-second book reviews, by far my favorite use of Twitter’s new tool.

Below, we’ve embedded vines that show how editors, authors and readers used the new tool. The official Vine blog also shares other innovative uses of the service.
