12seconds is Twitter... for video bloggers


You know we are a little obsessed with Twitter round these parts: the micro-blogging/social networking service is endlessly useful for finding information, keeping up with friends and family and sharing opinions. It's also been proved that catching up with your friends' Twitterings is the best way to start the day (according to, er, me).

12seconds doesn't have quite the same appeal, as I have no desire to show anyone my morning hair, the contents of my bedroom or what I'm having for lunch. But I do like the idea of the site in principle: you have (as you might have guessed) exactly 12 seconds to show the world what you're up to (and you can set the site to automatically tell Twitter when you've posted a new video if you wish).

Much better than long, rambling video diaries, the site gives a quick glimpse into its users' lives, and has even coined a new genre: micro videoblogging (catchy!).

If you want to join in, it's invite-only so far, but you can request an invite here. You can also watch other people's videos -- an easy way to kill a lot more than 12 seconds!

Just be warned: one man does his updates in the nude. (I really wish he'd kept to Twitter...)
