Pornhub Vine offer promises six-second quickies for adults as it offers to buy Vine

Pornhub Vine offer promises six-second quickies for adults

Adult entertainment giant Pornhub is seeking to get its hands-on Twitter’s Vine by offering to buy the video platform from the cash strapped social media platform to expand its audience and trial a new format of six-second porn videos.

In a formal offer to Twitter’s Jack Dorsey, Pornhub chief executive Corey Price offered to buy the company outright, which would prevent its shock closure and maintain all existing Vines on the service. It is also thought to be open to allowing people to continue posting new Vines.

The only downside for some is that the price of this generosity comes at the cost of allowing Pornhub to transform the platform into one giant teaser warehouse.

In his offer Price wrote: “My company Pornhub, the leading adult entertainment site with more than 60 million daily visitors, has a lot in common with Vine |Now, before you start rolling your eyes, hear me out Jack.

“We’re interested in purchasing Vine from you. We figure since Twitter has dropped it and is having significant layoffs that you and your stakeholders could benefit from a cash infusion from the sale of Vine”.

It is unknown whether Dorsey was turned on by the offer or whether it is just the latest publicity stunt from a company that once promised to donate to save a spermwhale for every porn video viewed during February this year.

Analysts have warned that the failure of Vine risks undermining confidence in Twitter further following its failed sale.
