Twitter changes Vine age limit from 12 to 17
Does this make it all better?
After a dustup over pornography showing up on Vine, the Twitter-owned video-sharing app has added an age rating for possible adult content.
The app for iPhone and iPod Touch, which lets anyone create and share six-second clips, quickly became a popular venue for pornography after its release last month. Twitter responded by trying to make it harder for users to find the adult videos, blocking a number of porn-related search terms such as "#porn."
The microblogging site initially added a warning still to the beginning of videos in question that users would have to bypass to see the clip. As first noted by The Verge, Twitter released a new version today that requires users to confirm that they are at least 17 years of age; the previous version described itself as suitable for users 12 and older.
