Vine plans to make a comeback

At the end of 2017, Vine’s co-founder Dom Hofmann announced on Twitter that Vine 2 was in the making. Twitter went into a frenzy asking multiple questions about V2.

Hofmann announced it will not be the same as Vine. The producers claimed there will be strict copyright rules. Posts that break them will be taken down. Hofmann mentioned on his Twitter account that he wants the user’s videos to be protected and not reposted by other people.

In order to create a safe environment, any harassment or negative criticism of videos will not be allowed on the app.

“It’s all right to disagree with someone’s work, but name calling, facetious attitudes or any other form of indirect harassment won’t be tolerated,” Hofmann said on his forums.

“Vine being rebooted is a good idea. I was a huge fan of the first app,” said Megan Sonerholm, freshman biology major. “However, I don’t like that it doesn’t allow videos to be reposted or shared with anyone because that was half of the fun.”

There are no Beta or formal sign ups for the new application. Hofmann suggested if future users really want a certain username, fill out a forum to reserve it.

There is no release date of when the application will be available but, fans of the original Vine said they are excited about the new reboot.
