There's some good news for Vine fans or ex-creators. Dom Hofmann, co-founder of Vine, has teased today via Twitter that the successor to Vine is going to be called "Byte" and will launch in Q2 of the upcoming year. The platform will presumably be based on the same premise of the original Vine app: create or post video clips that loop forever.
More specific details haven't been unveiled like: How long can the videos be? Where will we be able to share these videos? What features will the Byte app have? There are more questions than answers right now.

Vine co-founder plans to launch successor Byte in Spring 2019

5 monthes ago   |   By TechCrunch

Vine - the much loved and mourned short video hosting platform - will return, kind of, sort of. Co-creator Dom Hofmann announced on Twitter today that its spiritual success is set to arrive next spring.
Details? We don't have many. Though Hofmann did give us a name - Byte - and logo to match. From the sound out of, things will operate similarly to Vine, with short, looping videos. So far it's got a domain and a couple of admittedly clunky social media handles.

Hi welcome to Chili's.
As hard as it is to believe, it's been almost two years since Twitter officially shut down Vine in January 2017. Vine's founder Don Hofmann shared a logo for "V2" last December suggesting that a sequel to Vine was in the works, and now almost a year later, we know what it'll be called and when we'll be able to play around with it.
No, it's not called Vine 2. The new video looping service is called "Byte", and according to a tweet from Hofmann this afternoon, it'll launch in Spring 2019.

Vine lives, according to co-creator Dom Hofmann. The entrepreneur, who's been working on and off on a spiritual successor to the now-defunct short-form video app, says the proper sequel will be called Byte , and it's coming in spring 2019.
Twitter initially purchased Vine in 2012, before its official launch, and shut it down roughly four years later. Despite its short-lived existence, Vine became a hugely popular platform for video creators, many of whom have since moved on to Instagram, Twitch, and YouTube.
Now, Hofmann, one of the co-creators of the platform, is reviving it as Byte...
