Twitter’s Elon Musk launches a new poll asking users if Vine should be brought back

The decision to bring back Vine was overwhelmingly endorsed by Twitter users.


Twitter CEO Elon Musk has begun a poll on Twitter Inc. asking users whether he should bring back the short-video app Vine along with the introduction of a paid verification system on the network. On Twitter, Musk posted a poll with the straightforward question, “Bring back Vine?”

Vine’s return received a lot of support from Twitter users.

The Vine poll has received 1,137,354 votes thus far.

Elon Musk has conducted surveys in the past to determine if he ought to sell 10% of his stock in Tesla Inc. and whether the platform need to have an edit button.

In 2016, the social media platform shut down Vine.

In 2012, Twitter acquired Vine, which made a number of internet celebrities more well-known. Due of disputes over payment, some creators ultimately quit the platform. After Twitter decided against investing more money in the app, it was shut down. After purchasing, ByteDance Ltd. combined it with its own short-video platform TikTok the following year.

Meanwhile, Elon Musk announced in a tweet on Sunday, only days after taking control of one of the most significant social media platforms in the world, that Twitter will update its user verification procedure.

“Whole verification process is being revamped right now”, Musk said in his tweet without giving more details.

According to two persons with knowledge of the situation, technology newsletter Platformer revealed on Sunday that Twitter is thinking about charging for the coveted blue check mark confirming the identity of the account holder.

As the platform’s first subscription service, Twitter Blue was introduced in June of last year. For a monthly subscription fee, it provides “exclusive access to premium features,” including the ability to edit tweets.

After Musk asked his tens of millions of Twitter followers whether they wanted an edit button in April, the feature to edit tweets was also made accessible earlier this month. Yes votes totaled almost 70%.
