General Electric is executing a Twitter Vine-based "science fair" promotion through Aug. 15 that includes ads via several social platforms as well as an influencer push. The Fairfield, Conn.-based corporation is encouraging consumers to submit Vine videos with the hashtag #6SecondScience. The marketer will then tweet, Vine and blog the best examples.
