Vine Creator Teases New App, Could It Be Vine 2.0?

V2.Dom Hofmann/Twitter

Reports that the creator of the previously popular app Vine was making a follow-up app started circulating recently when he revealed that he was working on a side project. Now, Dom Hofmann is teasing the internet with an icon that says V2. Barring the possibility of the post being a hoax, many believe that this could only mean that Vine 2.0 really is happening.

In a rather cryptic Tweet, Hofmann included an image reminiscent of Vine’s green background and the text V2 in the same font. For all intents and purposes, this points to an app that is meant to be a direct follow-up to the original six-second clip phenomenon that dominated the web several years ago. This would fulfill the creator’s promise that he would be offering something of the sort.

As Gizmodo notes, the other people behind the original Vine have moved on to other things. Only Hofmann appears to have retained a fervent dedication to the app even after it was shut down by Twitter last year.

With this new teaser, it could mean the return of a beloved service that a lot of fans are still clamoring for, even now. On the other hand, this could easily lead to nothing. The Tweet could simply be Hofmann hinting that he is either working on the app or is planning on making the app. No tangible details have been released with regards to the actual product.

What’s more, no one knows what V2 is even supposed to do. The original Vine had many fans, but it obviously failed to offer much in terms of sustainable business, thus resulting in its demise. Even more troubling is the possibility of the potential app coming off as a disaster, which would only ruin the memory of its predecessor. That would not be good for anyone.
