Porn rampant on video app, but Twitter fights back

|

Last week, Twitter introduced Vine, a mobile service that allows Twitter users to capture and share short looping videos of up to 6 seconds.

Since the launch, Vine has been plagued with porn. But Twitter is now blocking many searches for pornographic terms, reports The Verve:

Trying to search for the #porn hashtag (and other terms such as #sex and #booty) brings up no results at this time. However, there are still numerous workarounds — #pornvine is still allowed, for example, as is #nsfw.

It’s available only on iPhone and iPod touch at the moment and is at the App Store, although Apple has pulled it out of the ‘editor’s pick’ lineup.

  1. I’ve discovered a really good free ocr app which changes pictures to pdf. The app functions very well compared to many the other apps that do this.
