Vine Now Prohibits Pornographic Content

vine twitterTitter’s Twitter’s micro-video platform, Vine, has changed its user policy to prohibit pornographic content. The change, however, does not completely remove nudity. Vine users who don’t want to see porn can flag questionable content for review.

Users who violate the new policy risk the chance of being suspended from their Vine account. To help you understand the new policy, we’ve got examples below of what is acceptable materials as well as a list of things not to post.

Examples of what’s not okay to post:

  • Sex acts, whether alone or with another person
  • Use of sex toys for sex acts
  • Sexually provocative nudity, for example, posts that focus on exposed genitalia or depict nudity in a context or setting that is sexually provocative (like a strip club)
  • Close-ups of aroused genitals underneath clothing
  • Art or animation that is sexually graphic (such as hentai)

 

 

Examples of what’s okay to post:

  • Nudity in a documentary context, e.g. videos of nude protestors
  • Nudity in an artistic context, e.g. nude modeling in an art class
  • Nudity that is not sexually provocative, e.g. a mother breastfeeding her child
  • Clothed sexually suggestive dancing
