The new v2 app was supposed to replace Vine's defunct video sharing platform.

If you miss the good old days of Vine and its 6-second video clips, we've got bad news for you. v2, the expected successor to Vine, has been postponed indefinitely, according to v2 creator and Vine co-founder Dom Hofmann.

Vine was incredibly popular in its heyday as the go-to place to upload and watch short and funny videos. Twitter bought the app in 2012 for $30 million, but then killed off the service in January 2017.

Vine fans were given a brief glimmer of hope when Vine co-founder Dom Hofmann said he was working on a v2 app in December 2017, but on Friday he stated that he was putting the project on hold due to "financial and legal hurdles."
