Vine begins censoring searches, weeds out #porn and more

vine porn

In the latest development in today's pornography on Vine saga, Twitter's video-sharing app now blocks many searches for pornographic terms. Trying to search for the #porn hashtag (and other terms such as #sex, #boobs, and #booty) brings up no results at this time. However, there are still numerous workarounds — #pornvine is still allowed, for example, as is #nsfw. Users can also still tag Vines with pornographic hashtags, and other users can simply tap on those tags to pull up a feed of videos just like the previous search would have done. However, what's important to note here is that it seems Vine has already begun the process of clearing out and hiding NSFW material — while they will likely never be able to completely rid the service of it, it sounds like it'll at least take a bit more work.
