Vine Co-founder Dom Hofmann Says He’s Working on a Follow-Up to Popular App

Remember Vine? The six-second video social media app lived a roller-coaster life, going from small startup to Twitter-owned internet juggernaut to shut down in what felt like the blink of an eye.

But there is some good news in the post-Vine darkness we’ve all been living in since Twitter shuttered the service last fall: Vine co-founder Dom Hofmann has announced (on Twitter, of all places) that he’s working on “a follow-up to Vine.”

There’s virtually no information about what Hofmann has in mind. We don’t even know if he means another short-form video app similar to the original Vine, or just some other project that will look to build on the foundation Vine started. Hofmann did say in a follow-up tweet that he’s funding the new project himself outside of his current company (a different mysterious project called Interspace). Hofmann declined to comment about the Vine follow-up beyond his tweets.
