When Vine died, a major part of a lot of people went with it. I have some people in my life who literally lay in bed quietly sobbing scrolling through old videos as they scream whenever someone suggests alternate social media platforms. Needless to say it was a beloved app and social media outlet. So today, Dom Hofmann, the founder of Vine made a major announcement that had Vine fans spitting with excitement.
He is currently working on Version 2 of the app which shut down permanently in 2016 shortly after Instagram started to allow users to upload videos. Fan reactions were quick and very emotional as an outpouring of gratitude was seen all over social media. For now Dom has no released any further information other than that Vine 2 is in the works. All we know now is that Dom is entirely funding the new version of Vine himself and is in entire control of the creative process.
