Twitter just released a great new way to use Vines for your business – the ability to embed them on your website.
And if you’re wondering why you should bother, you obviously didn’t catch our post on what a six-second video can do for your business (go read that first, we’ll wait.)

Twitter looks forward to seeing these “little windows into the people, settings, ideas and objects that make up your life” aka Vines – and so do we! Feel free to share a link to your in the comments!
