It’s the news that rocked many, Twitter is to shut down Vine. But there could be a lifeline.
It was a dark day for many yesterday after it emerged that Twitter was to close down its 6-second video sharing platform Vine. Although reasons for offloading the platform have been sparse many believe that a rapid decline in user base is at the heart of the decision.
Well, a lifeline has seemingly been thrown to the popular video platform, which attracted millions of users after its release in 2013.
Pornhub has said it’s interested in buying it.
A letter from Pornhub VP Corey Price to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey that was shared with CNET,
“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.”
Twitter has not responded to whether it will sell the platform.
It’ll be a new record if you can fap and finish in 6 seconds.
