Don Hofmann, best known for making Vine – and then selling it to Twitter – announced this week that its new application This will arrive in 2019.
The new application, called Byte, will allow users to make recurring (repetitive) videos of short duration. If this sounds like Vine thrush, it's because of that. Hofmann himself stressed that Byte is technically the second version of Vine, an application launched in 2012, sold to Twitter that year and closing its operations in 2017 after the arrival of Snapchat and Instagram.
The launch of the Byte will be done in the spring of next year, and of course at the launch of the window, Hofmann will provide more details about the timely release. Bytes have web pages and you can register to receive information about application availability.
Vine is a pioneer on the Internet. This application serves as a launcher for various content creators who are now in power on other platforms. Content creators such as Juanpa Zurita or Lele Pons began their careers on Vine, but later migrated to YouTube or Instagram because they were platforms where brands invested and there was room to monetize their views through advertisements; Vine has never offered an option to monetize, either independently or under Twitter.
The other two Vine founders, Colin Kroll and Sus Yusupov also had other projects. Both of them launched the Hype in 2016 but the application is unknown. Furthermore, both of them launched HQTrivia, an application that went against the Hype to achieve fame and remain there.
