Could it be true? Could Vine be coming back?

For those who lived under a rock, Vine was a video platform in which all videos were no more than six seconds and they looped. It became very popular, developing a culture of its own and allowing anyone to become famous if they managed to turn six seconds into something great. The platform was bought by Twitter in October 2012 and it thrived for a few years until Twitter unexpectedly announced that Vine would shut down in 2016. There wasn't a clear reason as to why the beloved platform would end, but Twitter did create an archival site so existing Vines could still be viewed. So users started making RIP Vine compilations, and you can find hundreds on YouTube or other social media platforms, because as much as Vine died, the memory of them and the culture sure has not.

Introducing Vine 2

And good thing, too, because today, Vine co-founder Dom Hoffman took to Twitter to tease Vine 2.

This is all we know so far, but the internet is alive with excitement. Creators and viewers of the beloved platform are rejoicing and praying that this new version of Vine is everything and more. Of course, who knows what it will be, or when it'll come to be. Six-second videos were genius and unique, so it seems likely that that aspect could remain, but anything can happen. 

So now we wait and continue to watch compilation videos, I guess.

Are you excited about Vine 2 or do you think Vine should stay dead?
