Twitter’s beloved social media app, Vine may be getting ready to make a return.
Co-founder, Dom Hofmann, has posted a mysterious tweet which simply reads “v2” and features a logo with the same mint green colour as Vine. The lettering also makes use of the same font as the original Vine logo. The news follows an announcement back in November that he was working on a “follow up” to the original app:
“I’m going to work on a follow-up to Vine,” he said. “I’ve been feeling it myself for some time and have seen a lot of tweets, DMs, etc. […] I’m funding it myself as an outside project, so it doesn’t interfere with the (quite exciting) work we’re doing at the company, which is my first priority […] Nothing else to share yet, but more as it develops.”
Twitter decided to kill the social network earlier this year. The app was used for quick 6-second videos, it’s still unclear why they killed the app but many active users showed their love for the format. Many top “Viners”, such as Logan Paul, began to shift over to platforms like YouTube, where it’s possible to make more revenue from your content.
