Twitter announced that Vine would shut down previous year, with many across the internet quite upset about it. Although it is a bit of shame, the firm was smart enough to keep everything archived, giving users a chance to navigate through the service's content.

With almost 200 million active monthly users at one point, we can't imagine it was too easy on the founder Dom Hofmann either.

Hofmann tweeted on November 30, "i'm going to work on a follow-up to vine. i've been feeling it myself for some time and have seen a lot of tweets, dms, etc".

Naturally, there will be more information shared when the time is right, but one has to question the return of the format, especially when the market has become quite crowded with competitors like Snapchat, Instagram, and others.

And the new name, which Hofmann tweeted almost a week later on December 6, is just as bite-size as the content it promises, simply, V2.

Hoffmann even added "working on V2" to his Twitter bio.

Some of the most looped Vines in the company's history include a video of a child getting taken for a spin on a moving, but cushioned, platform and a little boy who smiling says no, then immediately starts crying.
