We recently reported that within hours of Vine’s launch as a new tool to video tweet, many users started uploading porn videos. As a result of this, Apple has decided to abandon promoting the app and has removed it from its section highlighting Editor’s Choice.


Vine app

The problem was aggravated when it was realized that not only were users uploading porn clips using the app, even the Editor’s Picks section of the app highlighted an obviously pornographic video. Apparently, that was too much to take for Apple who has a strict no-porn policy for its App Store.

The online apps marketplace had been highlighting the new app in its Editor’s Choice section ever since its release. But due to the whole porn controversy, Apple has quietly removed the app from that section. Moreover, the app has also been removed from Apple’s ‘new and noteworthy’ section on the App Store.

Normally, Apple would’ve removed the app altogether before late. But the fact that the app is backed by Twitter itself makes Vine a high-profile player. And Apple may be playing it safe before making any dire decisions.

That said, we can still expect Vine’s exodus from the App Store. Or Apple may temporarily remove the app until the developers put certain filters on it so as to keep pornographic clips away, at least rated low enough so that they won’t make official Editor’s Picks section.
