vine_web_profileTwitter owned Vine in its latest move has decided to completely ban explicit content.

Updating its rules and terms of services,  Vine states that one cannot post content that is pornographic or sexually explicit.

This comes even as it was revealed that the mini video service was chock full of ‘micro porn’ films.

Explicit sexual content includes depictions of sex acts, nudity that is sexually provocative or in a sexual context, and graphic depictions of sexual arousal, it states. On the other hand, Twitter will allow Vine content with depictions of nudity or partial nudity that are primarily documentary, educational or artistic in nature.

Vine users found violating this policy may be suspended and eligible for account restoration only after they have removed violating posts adhering to the new rules and terms. Severe or repeated violation of this policy may lead to permanent suspension.

Those who come across content on Vine that violates the updated policy can report it by tapping the button with three dots below the post and selecting “Report this post”.
