Elon Musk is considering bringing back Vine and asks how to make it better than TikTok

Elon Musk is considering bringing back Vine and asks how to make it better than TikTok

He's uploaded a poll on Twitter to see whether the masses would want the social media app to come back from the dead.

You would think Elon Musk would be settled for a while after finalising his deal to takeover Twitter.

Think again.

The tech billionaire has put a poll out on his shiny new toy and asked people a very important question.

He wants to know whether the masses would like to see him resurrect Vine from the depths of social media hell.

For those who can't remember, Vine was a platform where users could upload six second-long videos.

It was an incredibly short window to be funny, but it was enough to launch the likes of Logan Paul, Lele Pons, Liza Koshy, Danny Gonzalez and David Dobrik into stardom.

The platform was founded back in 2012 and was quickly acquired by Twitter.

The company eventually closed it down by the end of the decade after archiving all the videos that had ever been created and posted.

Cut to now and Elon Musk seems to be pretty serious about bringing it back from the dead.

Three hours after posting the poll, he's already attracted more than a million votes, with a little more than 71 per cent saying yes at the time of writing.

Popular YouTuber MrBeast replied to Musk's poll, saying: "If you did that and actually competed with tik tok [sic] that’d be hilarious."

Musk said back: "What could we do to make it better than TikTok?"

It would be a fairly interesting playground if TikTok was to face off against Vine for the most amount of eyeballs.

Loads of people say Vine walked so TikTok could run and questions would be raised about whether the predecessor would keep its six-second framework or expand to something different.

It had 200 million users at its peak and was praised for offering something different to its then-competitors like Facebook and Instagram.

However, it wasn't long before Instagram added a 15-second story feature that allowed users to do things similar to Vine.

But, still, Vine managed to be a hub for content creators trying to make a quick laugh.

An article in The New Yorker said: "A Vine's blink-quick transience, combined with its endless looping, simultaneously squeezes time and stretches it."

It was also used by brands and celebrities to advertise or reveal new projects.

There's no denying Vine had its place in the social media landscape when it was booming around the world.

However, it certainly would be intriguing to see how many users would flock back if Elon Musk did manage to bring it back.
