It seems that the folks over at Apple has gotten the message – they have removed the Vine app from the Featured Apps section, which came along after the porn debacle. Just in case you were wondering what Vine is all about, this app allows users to be able to upload a short six second video clip online on just about anything and everything, and this has resulted in some users abusing the service by uploading uber short porn clips. This is clearly not something that Apple would put up with, and hence, they have removed Vine already from the App Store.
The folks over at Apple were not the only ones upset by the availability of adult content over at Vine, and there has been plenty of early adopters who claimed that they will no longer use the app – ever. Twitter, the owner of Vine, will definitely look into this issue and hopefully, learn from it and perhaps implement a more aggressive approach to filtering such content out in due time.
