Vine might be getting a second life

Last October, Twitter announced that it was discontinuing the beloved app for Vine, its short-form video-sharing service that had existed since 2013. A year has gone by since users could post clips of dogs dancing to Toto and terrifying rubber ducks, but on Wednesday, Vine founder Dom Hofmann teased there might be a light at the end of the tunnel:

Hofmann first announced that he was working on "a follow-up to Vine" in November, although The Verge observed that there is "virtually no information about what Hofmann has in mind. We don't even know if he means another short-form video app similar to the original Vine, or just some other project that will look to build on the foundation Vine started."
