As it turns out, Apple must have heard about Vine's little "problem" this week. That is the only explanation for why Apple has effectively dumped Vine - the freshly launched app for video sharing on Twitter - from its Editor's Choice.
Despite being rolled out for Twitter just last Thursday, the Vine app is already plagued by an unwelcome amount of adult video content. And while Vineís terms of service donít specifically warn of banishment in response to uploading mature content, Twitter's terms of service certainly don't encourage that sort of thing.
You are responsible for your use of the Services, for any Content you post to the Services, and for any consequences thereof. The Content you submit, post, or display will be able to be viewed by other users of the Services and through third party services and websites. You should only provide Content that you are comfortable sharing with others under these Terms.
"A human error resulted in a video with adult content becoming one of the videos in Editor's Picks, and upon realizing this mistake we removed the video immediately," said a Twitter representative. "We apologize to our users for the error."
As of this writing, it remains to be seen if and how Vine or Twitter will address the growing problem of naughty video clips turning up with surprising frequency.
