12seconds – Just About How Long It Would Take You To Type Your Tweet

25Jul08

12seconds is a video lifestreaming service that allows you to post your updates in video form.  The only catch is that your video can be no longer, or shorter, than 12 seconds.

When I first heard about 12seconds my initial thought was, “oh boy, another way to post your updates”.  But after trying it out for a while today, I can definitely see how this could catch on.  It works very closely to the way Twitter does, but everything you would normally tweet, you quickly record with your webcam or mobile phone.  If you would normally tweet that you’re eating a delicious ham, you could quickly show people that you’re eating a delicious ham.  You can follow  your friends and see what they’ve been up to all day.  Each video has its own URL and people can add comments as well.  You can also choose to have your 12second updates pushed through to your Twitter account.

As of now, 12seconds appears to be in private alpha, but if I get any invites I’ll let you know!  The screencast below will show you how it works:

  8. 12seconds is only a clone!
    spOtmob (http://www.spotmob.com) is the origin,
    spOtmob was launched a year ago!!!!!

  9. That is a cool service. About how often do 12seconds users generally post their updates to twitter? I am thinking most twitter users would get mad if they saw those videos too often.
