12Seconds in 2008
12Seconds was way ahead of its time with a service that let you record 12-second video clips and post them to the Web. When it first jumped onto the iPhone, there was no video recording available to developers, so its creators got around that by offering a slideshow feature that people could add audio to. A year later, in 2009, the company finally offered a way to shoot and post from phones that would send those clips straight to Twitter. The service shut down in the fall of 2010, in part because Twitter users were already finding other places to host their videos, including Twitter clients that would do it without requiring you to leave the app.
