Watch Vine videos sprout in real time with Vinepeek


Following in the footsteps of Instagram aggregators such as This Is Now, Vinepeek is a simple, one-page site showing newly-posted vines in real time. It's a basic concept, but the restrictions of Twitter's new video system — each post can only be up to six seconds in length — make it oddly compelling, offering fleeting glimpses into the lives of complete strangers.

With the Vine app only announced on Thursday, it's clear that some users are still struggling with the form: it takes a surprising amount of skill to tell a story in such a short space of time. But those who have mastered its quick-cut system are already producing beautiful vignettes of day-to-day life in 2013. Head over to Vinepeek to check them out.
