vineHistoric Royal Palaces has released a clip on Twitter’s social video app Vine relaying the history of the Tower of London in six seconds.

The clip crams Beefeaters, ravens and the 1,000-year-old White Tower into its brief viewing time, with the charity’s digital media officer John Shevlin claiming his team is excited by the potential Vine has to showcase its five palaces – the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, the Banqueting House, Kensington Palace and Kew Palace – and tell their history with brevity and creativity.

“We see Vine as a captivating new digital tool which will help our followers to time travel with us, experiencing centuries of stories six seconds at a time,” Shevlin said. “Our next six-second video will look at Henry VIII and his six wives.”
