  • The Vine app could be resurrected by Elon Musk's team, if the recent tweets are anything to go by.

If you’re a fan of Tik Tok then you probably have heard about Vine. This was a popular social media app that allowed users to create and share videos. Sadly, its service was axed in 2016 after some issues that led to its downfall.

It now seems that Elon Musk is reportedly considering bringing back the social media platform Vine. Mr. Musk conducted a Twitter poll where he asked the users whether he should bring the Vine app back.

In a matter of hours, Elon’s tweet seems to have attracted a large number of people. A record 4.9 million people voted on the poll. And according to the final results, at least 69% of the voters would like Vine to make a comeback.

Mr. Beast, a popular YouTuber took to the platform and replied to Elon’s tweet If you did that and actually competed with TikTok that’d be hilarious. In response, Musk said What could we do to make it better than TikTok?

Given that Vine has been out for more than half a decade, things have definitely changed. Vine was never really a competitor to TikTok. But, if it was to make a comeback, it would not only have TikTok as a competitor but also other apps that have taken over the market.

With the advancements in various platforms, it could even be available for Windows devices now that you can install Android apps on Windows. At the moment, it’s unclear how much work Musk’s team has put into bringing back Vine but we’re hoping for good things.
