Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey is so excited about his new Vine app for video sharing that he has selflessly used his own face as a model.
To pimp out Vine’s new front-facing capability, the young upstart has been broadcasting his own visage—well, half of it--as he just sort of stands at various San Francisco locations and stares at the camera. He’s always in sunglasses and sometimes has a toothpick hanging out of his mouth, which is the maverick, Silicon Valley metrosexual equivalent of a pinkie ring.
Dude, you are young, handsome and filthy rich. Must you rub our faces in it?
