The guy who made Vine? He just made Vine 2.0 (essentially)
All social networks are bad. There's a reason for this.
In January 2017, the six-second-video sharing app Vine shut down and took what was perhaps the only good thing left on the internet with it. The app that launched 1,000 memes was owned by Twitter, a site where gamers and white nationalists come together to attack minorities and women, and did not fit into the company's long-term strategy, according to The Verge.
After the initial announcement of the shutdown back in October 2016, Vine co-founder Rus Yusupov took to Twitter to share some advice; "don't sell your company!"
But here in 2018, when things could not look bleaker, Vine's other co-founder Dom Hofmann has returned to us bearing a message of hope:
For now, little is known about Byte. Hofmann has been sitting on the name for awhile now—he'd previously tested out an app, also called Byte, as a "creative tool" that was inspired by his experience with creating Vine as much as it was by Mario Paint, he told the Verge in 2015. But this new Byte seems to be something completely different, which is to say, hopefully,y it is as similar as possible to the O.G. app that we knew and loved.
Now, go forth, and watch these Vines at work.
