Elon Musk teases Vine app revival on Twitter
Yahoo Finance Live anchors discuss a potential return of Vine.
JULIE HYMAN: Could we see the return of Vine? Twitter's new owner Elon Musk purportedly is thinking about bringing back the short form video app that Twitter had bought and abandoned. He tweeted out a poll yesterday, asking users if they thought he should bring back Vine. 69% of the near 5 million voters say yes, they want Vine back in the App Store. I know that Sozz is a big fan of this.
BRIAN SOZZI: Big.
JULIE HYMAN: I'm sort of agnostic on Vine.
BRIAN SOZZI: You know why I like Vine? This sent me back to some of the Vines I posted in 2014. They are out there on the internet. And why I liked it and I remember, it was just simple to use. You put your finger on the button, and you make a Vine. It wasn't as complicated as with TikTok. Instagram's OK, but Vine was just very simple and very intuitive.
BRAD SMITH: But why would it be a separate thing if it is acquiring Twitter? Of course, yeah, you could have a separate app experience, but why not fold it into the same app and be able to just have, similar to what Instagram has with a different button for Reels, just have that for Vine within the same Twitter experience?
JULIE HYMAN: Like I said, spaghetti against the wall, people. But according to CC, that's how you do it when you're an entrepreneur.
BRIAN SOZZI: Thank you to Binance tweeting out our article, really blowing up there on Twitter. Sure.
