While fellow co-founders Colin Kroll and Rus Yusupov busy (and embarrass) themselves with runaway hit HQTrivia, Hofmann has apparently remained obsessed, as many of us have, with Vine. The lettering also makes use of the same font as the original Vine logo.

On Wednesday, Hofmann tweeted a cryptic image simply bearing the characters "V2" in the signature shade of Vine green.

Before it had even launched officially, it was acquired by Twitter in October 2012 for a reported $30 million.

Last week, Vine cofounder Dom Hoffman tweeted that he was contemplating a follow-up to the platform.

'I've been feeling it myself for some time and have seen a lot of tweets, dms, etc, ' Hofmann tweeted about the new plans.

He added that he is funding it as an "outside project" to ensure that the work does not interfere from his current job at Interspace.

'Nothing else to share yet, but more as it develops'.

Its successor, Vine Camera, rolled out as an app that lets users record 6.5 second looping videos that can be uploaded to Twitter. It's unclear why exactly the app was scrapped, especially when it had so many active users who were passionate about the format, but it may be due to an exodus by its top 1% of users. Needless to say it was a beloved app and social media outlet.
