The rising amount and consumption of online videos not only led to short attention spans of the audience but makes it even harder to distinguish between fake and non-fake news. Snipedy allows users to cut out highlights from existing videos and share them like a quote with a backlink to its original version. This makes it a new communication tool that breaks the walls of misleading communication by putting clips into their original context, e.g. a COV-19 update, the latest WHO statement, etc.
