After making the acquisition of Twitter official days ago for 44,000 million dollars, Elon Musk made a clean slate and a new account in the company . As quickly as it came, it fired much of the board of directors and hinted that Twitter might start charging for maintaining verified accounts.

There are many ideas that the billionaire has in his head for this platform, but it seems that this social network is not enough for him. A new report suggests that Elon Musk could revive Vine after buying Twitter . Will it rise from its ashes?

Vine could return very soon and millions of users support its return

According to a report by tech outlet Axios , Elon Musk asked a group of engineers to work on Vine’s comeback . The information was later corroborated by The Verge and a little later Musk himself asked on Twitter if they wanted him to bring back the video platform.

The answer was clear and left no room for doubt, since 69.6% of the almost 5 million participating users said yes . Taking into account all these events, it is quite likely that it will happen and that Musk will end up reviving Vine.

It’s really early to set a certain date for Vine’s return, but Axios decided to jump into the water. The blog noted that Vine could be back by the end of the year, but that seems like a very short time. Even so, if there is someone who does not believe in the impossible, it is Musk and the rest of his team. Also, Vine already existed and is owned by Twitter, so some of the work is ahead.

We don’t know if it will turn out to be true in the end, or if it’s one of the classic billionaire Twitter jokes, but it would be interesting to see what happens if Vine returns. After all, this platform was the one that laid the foundations for other social networks based on short videos.

What is Vine? The cornerstone behind TikTok and other platforms

Since Vine officially shut down in October 2016, younger generations probably don’t know what we’re talking about. TikTok was not even close to the first platform based on short videos. Long before her there was Vine, a social network that many of its users considered to be ahead of its time .

Originally, this platform allowed you to post and share videos of up to 6 seconds in length . However, after the acquisition by Twitter in June 2016, this number was increased to 140 seconds.

Like Instagram, TikTok, and others, Vine had a section dedicated to exploring content. Likewise, you could use tags to position your videos and it had a trends section similar to that of Twitter. Its algorithm was not as polished as TikTok’s, but Vine was definitely the starting point that served as an example for the Chinese social network.

His return may be fueled by nostalgia, but if Musk and company do it right, they could send the competition shivering .
