A Vine 2.0 may be happening sooner than you think.

After being shut down at the beginning of the year the social media platform Vine is looking to make a return. So today, Dom Hofmann, the founder of Vine made a major announcement that had Vine fans spitting with excitement. He tweeted a simple logo that reads "V2" in the light-green color of the platform and same font type. It was mostly considered a medium for a diverse set of creators to shape online comedy with looping, six-second videos.

'I'm funding it myself as an outside project, so it doesn't interfere with the (quite exciting) work we're doing at the company, which is my first priority.

Hofmann has not released much information about the upcoming app or how far advanced it is. He has also said that the platform is "an outside project" that won't interfere with whatever they are now developing at Vine Labs.

What it will consist of is completely open to interpretation, but many are hoping it will bring back the short videos that brought fame to those willing to imbibe in the odd things in life.

The original Vine was shut down in January this year after it was acquired by Twitter for an estimated $20 million.

However he just took to Twitter to tease something HUGE...

By 2016, the app had over 200 million active monthly users and more than 1.5 billion loops have been viewed since inception.

Twitter still holds the rights for the name of the platform Vine, which suggests the next version will either have an entirely new name (like V2?) or be developed with consent from the microblogging site as a revamped feature that won't fade into social media cult obscurity once again.
