Twitter recently introduced the Vine app for iOS users; the app allows users to upload video tweets spanning no more than 6 seconds and running on a repeated loop. The idea of video tweets certainly seems promising but unfortunately, a number of users have started uploading pornographic videos using the feature.


The problem started to catch the attention of tech analysts merely days after the launch of the Vine app. When you punch in the hashtags #porn or #sex, you realize that a whole lot of results yield Vine videos which have been uploaded by users, most of them males showing off their creativity in probably the most distasteful manner.

Apparently, the terms of service offered by Vine do not clearly forbid users from uploading such content. In doing so, Vine kind of follows the same policy as Twitter, who has tried hard over the years to maintain freedom of speech for all.

However, Vine’s Terms do state that, “You are responsible for your use of the Services, for any Content you post to the Services, and for any consequences thereof. The Content you submit, post, or display will be able to be viewed by other users of the Services and through third party services and websites. You should only provide Content that you are comfortable sharing with others under these Terms.”

If users find any video offensive, they can flag it and once enough complaints are received, Twitter will add a warning at the start of the video. But the question is, will that resolve the problem? We have seen a virtually infinite number of bots existing on regular Twitter and the trend may soon find its way to Vine apps too. Twitter needs to find out a definite method of filtering out pornographic and spam videos so as to let users have a good, creative video-tweeting experience through Vine.
