Founder hints at a new version of Vine
Is the viral video platform Vine about to make a comeback?
Dom Hoffman, founder of the popular six-second video app, issues an appropriately short Tweet on Wednesday with a simple "V2":
The site made stars of people like teen Nash Grier, singer Shawn Mendes and Andrew B. Bachelor, better known as KingBach, who at one time had 13.6 million followers.
The app, which is owned by Twitter, was shut down in 2016, largely because it wasn't a money-maker.
Hoffman tweeted in November that he was "going to work on a follow-up to Vine."
i'm going to work on a follow-up to vine. i've been feeling it myself for some time and have seen a lot of tweets, dms, etc.— dom hofmann (@dhof) November 30, 2017
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— dom hofmann (@dhof) November 30, 2017
nothing else to share yet, but more as it develops— dom hofmann (@dhof) November 30, 2017
