"Will Look Into It" Elon Musk Replied

On Recovering Old Vine Videos

November 28, 2022

Twitter Chief Elon Musk has replied to a user who was asking to recover old videos of the micro-blogging site's short-form video application, Vine.

"Will we get our old Vine accounts back?" a Twitter user asked.

To this, new Twitter CEO replied: "Friends have asked me if there's a way to recover their old Vine videos! Will look into it."

Last month, Musk had posted a poll on the micro-blogging platform, asking users if they think Vine should be brought back, with a caption, "Bring back Vine?"

Vine was a 6-second looping video clip sharing platform owned by Twitter.

The company shut down the Vine app service in 2016, revamping it into Vine Camera that allowed users to shoot 6.5 seconds looping videos.

Twitter acquired Vine in October 2012, and as of 2016, the application had over 200 million active monthly users.
