It didn’t take long. I wrote and posted by last on the death of Vine with the idea that another company could split the video channel from Twitter and make it a separate, successful entity, and less than twenty minutes later a possibility looms. Not, perhaps, that which many would hope for, but a possibility; the start of a movement.

PornHub, for those innocents not in the know, is probably the most successful pornographic, decidedly NSFW, site in the world. Could they be considering a venture into the more acceptable world of clean videos? Do PornHub executives read my blog for their inspiration?
Fine, that last is probably, on a scale of zero to minus ten, unlikely, but still. PornHub could, if they handle it properly and keep the site clean, turn a profit quickly and keep the popular video site running. Whether those who presently partake in Vine would be as accepting is another matter entirely.
