DFM Chat on Vine, mobile video and uses for journalism

Journalists, members of Digital First Media and pretty much everyone else who wants to - are going to be taking part on the weekly Twitter chat Wednesday at noon, Eastern Time.

Useless gifboom of my cat doesn't help the journalistic case
Today we're talking about mobile video platforms and how they can be used in journalism. Yes, I'm talking about Twitter's newly released micro-video platform Vine. But what about Tout, SocialCam, Gifboom, Cinemagram and the rest? What ARE the rest? Or is this just all a big fad? Can you really tell a story on 6 or 15 seconds?

The live feed is posted below. But you can also follow the chat here or here or also here. And you can also check out past chats over here.

If you want to chime in, post a comment in the container or a tweet with the hashtag "#dfmchat" so it can appear below.
