Twitter introduced that it was shutting down viral video app Vine in 2016, to the dismay of tens of millions. Then, towards the top of 2017, Vine founder Dom Hofmann teased Vine’s return, or some successor to it, with a easy tweet, “v2.” The tweet has since been deleted.
Now, on the finish of 2018, we’ve got our reply: Byte.
The new looping video app with apparently arrive in spring 2019. How it is going to differ or enhance upon Vine, if it does in any respect, stays to be seen. What we do know is that within the present tradition of lightning quick memes and TikTok’s rising presence, a Vine successor is bound to breed the subsequent technology of creators and influencers.
Stay tuned for Byte’s arrival subsequent yr.
