(Newser) – Sick of spreading your message by text alone on sites such as Twitter, but not ready to actually talk to your friends face to face? Worry not: a new site, “12 Seconds,” allows you to post video updates from home or on your mobile device, Mashable reports. The only catch? You’ve probably figured it out already: each video must be 12 second or less, which is probably just about as much as the average netizen can stand.
