‘We don’t have a problem with explicit sexual content on the Internet – we just prefer not to be the source of it.’
Twitter has effected changes to its rules and terms of service which includes ban on sexually explicit content on its Vine mobile app.
The company said in a blog post, "We’ve found that there’s a very small percentage of videos that are not a good fit for our community."
Vine said, "For more than 99% of our users, this doesn’t really change anything. For the rest: we don’t have a problem with explicit sexual content on the Internet – we just prefer not to be the source of it."
Earlier in 2014, Twitter has updated Vine to ensure users can lock focus and exposure while shooting their videos.
The latest version, only available on iOS at the moment, is meant to eliminate problems of over- and underexposure by setting the level of exposure automatically.
