Elon Musk has instructed Twitter engineers to work on a Vine reboot that could be ready by year end, multiple sources tell Axios.
Why it matters: Twitter shuttered the looping-video app in 2016 after acquiring it four years earlier, leaving loyal Vine fans dismayed.
Details: Twitter engineers already have been assigned to look at Vine's old code base, which hasn't been changed or updated since the shutdown.
Between the lines: Musk is said to have discussed Vine in the months leading up to his Twitter acquisition, and on Sunday launched a Twitter poll asking if he should bring it back. Responses were running about 2-1 in favor, as of this writing.
The big picture: The Vine reboot is one of several sweeping changes Musk is considering just days after buying Twitter for $44 billion, including new options for user verification.
