VineTwitter just acquired Vine, a mobile service that lets you capture and share short looping videos. Much like the Tweets on Twitter, the videos are brief, six seconds or less. Twitter claims that the brevity inspires creativity.

You can read more about the app on the Vine blog. Vine is currently available on the iPhone and iPod touch. You can download it for free from the App Store. They are working to bring it to other platforms, so stay tuned.
