Elon Musk is Thinking of Resurrecting Vine

2 min read


Now that Elon Musk has finished buying Twitter, the bird app may see a variety of modifications. However, bringing Vine back wasn’t on our bingo list. Although the long-gone short-form video app is well-liked, bringing it back didn’t seem to be a top priority as the company has other, more urgent issues that need to be resolved.

However, a recent Twitter survey conducted by the new owner of Twitter himself appears to suggest otherwise. Musk posted a Twitter poll on Sunday evening with the simple question, “Bring back Vine?”

It should be noted that just because the poll exists doesn’t guarantee Musk will definitely bring it back. But it does appear to suggest that he is giving it some thought. His poll drew a strong response from Twitter users, as seen by the fact that it had over 3.5 million votes as of this writing with 10 hours left in the poll.

If you’re not familiar, Vine was a video-sharing app for brief videos. Furthermore, each video lasted only six seconds. But despite their briefness, vines frequently had wit and entertainment value to spare. Vine debuted in 2013, was acquired by Twitter, and was shut down in 2016 after a brief existence. Even though it was only around for a brief while, it was loved and is now greatly missed.

In fact, the now-defunct service was mentioned in a tweet that co-founder and former CEO Jack Dorsey supposedly responded to in April. Dorsey reportedly expressed sadness for pulling it down in his Twitter response.

Musk would undoubtedly have supporters if he decided to bring Vine back since it would appeal to people’s nostalgia for a more carefree era of social media history. But what may Vine look like if it returns?

Vine’s potential resuscitation is an intriguing idea, especially in relation to TikTok, whose rivals are constantly attempting to catch up to it with mixed results and frequently harsh criticism. Which raises the possibility that TikTok’s cherished short-form video forerunner may be the sole genuine rival.
