PANIC OVER: Twitter addresses Vine's big porn problem

Comments (0)

vine-app-screenshot.jpgYesterday the world imploded because Twitter's new service Vine served up porn for those who went looking for it and stupidly posted a rather x-rated videoy-viney-thing in the Editor's Picks section of the app too.

Everyone went from declaring Vine the 'next big thing' to suggesting it's the work of the devil. Well now we can all calm down and breathe, because Twitter has been working relentlessly to address the big porn and penis problem Vine's been facing.

Now Twitter has tweaked the app so that searches for run-of-the-mill porn terms like #porn and #sex don't present any results. However, there's no way of policing every bit of content and they'll still be plenty of very 'adult' stuff on the app, it just won't be quite as easy to find.

Twitter still stands by its policy that other users are responsible for flagging up anything they deem inappropriate:

"Users can report videos as inappropriate within the product if they believe the content to be sensitive or inappropriate (e.g. nudity, violence, or medical procedures).

"Videos that have been reported as inappropriate have a warning message that a viewer must click through before viewing the video."

This is a good idea, but many are questioning whether Apple will intervene soon and deem Vine just far too porny for its own good.
