For real this time

It looks like Vine, the only good thing to ever exist on the internet, is finally making a return. The service was tragically shut down in January 2017, due to small issues like not ever making any goddamn money and having literally the worst-designed website in human history, but now it seems set to make a grand comeback.

That's one of the original creators of Vine, Dom Hofman. As you can see, he's looking to revive the once-great video platform. He even has a name and logo for it:

He's even worked out the logistics

Vine, as you probably know, was purchased by Twitter back in the day. It was then later shut down by Twitter, mainly because they couldn't find a way to make it profitable. Seeing as Twitter itself is barely profitable, this didn't come as amuch of a surprise - *GIF of Kermit sipping tea*. The whole 'Twitter owning Vine' element will also be why this is called 'V2' instead of 'Vine 2', because Twitter will own the term 'Vine'.

Now we can finally get back to content that matters. Like this:

RIP Vine, we'll never forget you ✊
