I’m pretty sure that if you have been on these forums for a while, you may have seen this comment and/or comments similar to this from various users in the community.
This was a statement many users of the community agreed on. I even went on to censor the word “Vine” to make it easier for people to realize that the only connection byte has with Vine is the fact that @dom founded Vine and byte and to try to make people stop spreading, what was then considered, a misconception. (see: Some Modifications and Suggestions )
Recently, however, Dom has referred to byte as a follow-up to Vine. He’s even placed this statement on his Twitter bio.
Now, I wasn’t 100% sure if the words “follow-up” and “sequel” were actually synonyms. So, I checked various online dictionaries and, according to the all of the sources I’ve seen, they are. Here is the best definition I could find that ties these two words together:
from The Oxford Dictionary: Something that takes place after or as a result of an earlier event.
Due to this new information about the app, please disregard any statements I previously made talking about how this app isn’t a sequel to Vine.
Thank you for reading,
