Vine, Twitter’s micro-video social network, is perhaps the best form of entertainment for Generation Distraction. With a limit of six seconds per video, Vine allows viewers to absorb a diverse array of content in just a few minutes, and forces Vine-makers to be concise with their creations. The result is a steady supply of hilarious, surprising and inventive mini-movies.
To celebrate this relatively new medium, we'll be doing a weekly compilation of our favorite Vines. This week, we offer everything from pranks for amputees to a little girl who's really excited about being a cupcake, and of course, Miley Cyrus as a bear. If you see something you like, we encourage you to follow its creator on Vine. If there’s something you don’t like, well, just wait a few seconds and it will be over.
