A hacker by the name of Avinash discovered Vine's source code is publicly available, and for his efforts, parent company Twitter has paid him $10,080.
The news is only coming out now, but Avinash presented his findings to Twitter about two months ago, at which point they fixed the issue within five minutes.
Tech giants paying hackers for bug bounties is a standard practice; bug bounty hunter Anand Prakash has earned roughly $1 million to date.
