We thought that the days of the widely popular six-second Vine sorts came to an end when Twitter killed it off at the beginning of this year. The decision to end Vine was devastating to many that had formed a unique community. Vine was a platform many creators and a number of viral stars that grew to fame shooting often interesting or hilarious six-second videos. It’s been tough few months for the post-Vine community; they’ve been forced to move over to places like Instagram or YouTube to fill their void. But their pain may soon be over. Vine cofounder Dom Hofmann has just teased at a possible successor to Vine after tweeting a simple “V2” logo styled in the original Vine’s iconic type and color.
The response to Hofmann’s “Vine 2” tweet has been huge. The tweet was retweeted over 66,000 times in just three hours and became a trending topic.
The tweet came after a previous tweet that Hofmann posted about a week ago where he said that he is “going to work on a follow-up to vine.” He also tweeted that he is funding himself as an “outsider project,” later saying that he doesn’t want it interfering with Interspace, which is his current company and is his “first priority.”
As you can probably guess, there isn’t really anything else out there about a Vine 2.0 other than Hofmann’s recent tweets. A Vine 2.0 could follow the similar six-second video format that the original did, or it could go in a completely different direction; we don’t know. But we do at least now Hofmann said that he would share more with the public as the project progresses further.
