Sara Beykpour, the former Vine employee, tweeted that the codebase of Vine is about six years old, and it also has elements that are old than a decade. This means that the engineers of Vine will have to work extra hard to make Vine as good as TikTok and YouTube shorts.
Besides Vine, Elon Musk is also planning a series of changes on Twitter. He wants to bring verification badges in the limitations of Twitter’s monthly paid service.
