If you're a conventional TV channel, there's no question that Netflix has your attention. In fact, Amazon as well.

The video service, which lets users embed 6-second videos in their tweets, has already broken into the top 15 apps in the iTunes App Store. On top of that, Vine may have already made enemies with...

If you think 140-character tweets are restrictive, try a six-second video.
