Twitter’s new Vine app is causing controversy.
The app, which allows the sharing of six second video clips, is facing major complaints about pornographic content, and now requires users to confirm that they are 17 or older, reported ABC News.
Complaints required the company to make some changes to their app, and then resubmit it to the app store.
Yet, even though the media has lashed out on Vine, the app was never removed from Apple’s store.
New updates allow users to block and report other users. Previously, you were only able to report pieces of content, and when you used to block a user, their information would still come up in your feed.
Despite Apple’s ban on pornography, changes have also been made to the ratings of Tumblr and photo sharing service 500px, which has a Nude category, and is said to contain pornographic content, stated The Telegraph.
Twitter has also made it difficult to search for porn.
Vine users are able to download the new version of the app now, and new users downloading the app will automatically get the new and improved version.
