Musk is considering a revival of Vine, according to people familiar with the matter. Vine, acquired by Twitter in 2012, was a popular short-form video app, which minted several internet stars before it faded and was shut down. The service started the trend now dominated by ByteDance Ltd.’s TikTok and copied by Instagram’s Reels and YouTube’s Shorts. Many employees are volunteering internally to work on the Vine project, according to a person familiar with the matter, hoping that joining an effort Musk is excited about might help them keep their jobs.
