I agree with @onkelchrispy. He’s not being negative, he’s just being honest and real. Let’s face it, this isn’t a happy situation for any of us who got our hopes up.
Saying the app will be postponed “indefinitely” could mean 6 months or 6 years or forever. The problem is, the longer it is postponed, the more likely it will never happen because these other knock-off apps will by then figure out how to fill the void left by Vine. But it’ll never be the same or anything close to what Vine was. Which is too bad, because as Onkel said, Vine was a unique platform that was unlike anything else at the time. Twitter just threw all that away, which was incredibly stupid of them.
If there’s no V2 app within a year, I don’t think the project will end up being postponed forever. Someone else will come out with an app that comes close to what Vine was in the meantime (and that isn’t OEVEO by any stretch) and it’ll just make V2 look like the “Me Too” app, not the “authentic” sequel to Vine.
I, too, hope I’m wrong and that Dom somehow figures out how to get around all the hurdles he mentioned by the end of 2018, but I’m not getting my hopes up. Been there, done that.
