You say 140 characters is 139 too many words? Or you feel this is something folks need to be seen and hear and all you have is your iPhone. There is an app for that and it is called Tout.
Those of you that remember the late lamented 12Seconds will understand what this is about. Point, record and upload what you have to say or show.
Video quality depends on how stead the person is while holding the iPhone. Yeah, it can be kinda rocky. Then again for real time "You gotta see this" action this could work for some folks.
