Pornhub wants to save Vine

Twitter officially made it public that it would shut down Vine which allowed the users to share 6-second video clips when it was launched initially earlier in 2013. Although it has attracted a lot of users, other video platforms such as Instagram and YouTube has overtaken Vine long ago in Stone Age. However, the website will continue to be live to let the users view their uploaded videos. Twitter will stop the services of the app and will stop allowing users from creating new Vines.

Now, it seems like another company wants to buy Vine from Twitter. And guess which company that is? Your heart will burn like fire when I say the name. Yes, it’s Pornhub.

Corey Price, the Vice President of Pornhub sent a letter to Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey. In the letter, Mr Price said:

We figure since Twitter has dropped (Vine) and is having significant layoffs that you and your stakeholders could benefit from a cash infusion from the sale of Vine. Not to mention we would be saving Vine gems like ‘Damn Daniel,’ ‘Awkward Puppets’ and many more.

Price also said in the letter that it will restore the glory of Vine. According to him, six seconds limit in Vine is more than enough for people to enjoy. However, it will be interesting to see if this Twitter will consider this offer.

Vine, the short-form video hosting service, was founded in 2012 and became popular for its six-second looping videos. However, Twitter, which acquired Vine in 2012, decided to shut it down in 2016 due to various reasons, including competition from other social media platforms like Instagram and Snapchat.

Since then, Vine’s original format has not been revived or brought back by any major company or platform. If there have been any developments or announcements regarding Pornhub or any other company attempting to save Vine after my last update, I wouldn’t be aware of them. Please keep in mind that circumstances can change over time, so it’s essential to check for the latest news and updates from reliable sources.
