    GIF ?

    Six seconds of looping video - so that'll be an animated GIF then?

    The 1990s called, they want their technology back.

    I'd like to see .....

    ... a video of the average Twitter user attempting to make a compelling/interesting/useful six seconds video. What's that you say?.....It would take six seconds?
