thisistheverge: Turkish bombing footage shows why Vine may not work for journalism (yet) In early February, a suicide bomber attacked the American Embassy in Turkey. The moments and hours afterwards were captured on video by Turkish TV reporters and CNN — and by a contributor for news site Al Monitor, who captured some of the first Vine-based breaking news. Hm. If you could parse and sync multiple vines to the exact times they were recorded (even down to the clips within vines), you could theoretically then construct a massive virtual wall of videos that “took place” at a set duration during the same time, from more or less the same place.  It could be like a realtime/real life version of the intro to the Monkees “Head.”  Um, now that would be cool. And, you know, journalistic and stuff.
