Vine co-founder teases Vine 2 on Twitter

Vine co-founder teases Vine 2 on Twitter

But, a cryptic new tweet from Vine founder Don Hofmann suggests another version could be in the works. "There are 9,725 users on Vine that have more than 15,000 followers, putting them in the 99th percentile, but 5,094 of them have not posted on the platform since the beginning of this year". He tweeted a simple logo that reads "V2" in the light-green color of the platform and same font type.

Hofmann had previously stated that he was working on a follow-up to the original six-second video.

"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", Hofmann added.

Hofmann has not released much information about the upcoming app or how far advanced it is.

What it will consist of is completely open to interpretation, but many are hoping it will bring back the short videos that brought fame to those willing to imbibe in the odd things in life. No other details are known about the sequel app.

On January 17 of this year, Twitter officially shut down the service, after encouraging users to download their archived chips before the app was turned into another sharing tool. Other than that, the six-second looping is still a desirable format, and marketing-wise, Vine 2 might need a push to help it stay relevant in the new social media scene.

With almost 200 million active monthly users at one point, we can't imagine it was too easy on the founder Dom Hofmann either.

In the process of Vine shutting down a number of memorable videos were also removed although many of them can still be found on YouTube, such as this one.
