Nudity is still allowed as long as it's artistic, educational or a documentary

Keep those sexy videos to yourself, because Twitter has made porn a no-no on Vine. 

According to the Vine blog, Twitter -- which owns the social video service Vine -- has changed its rules and terms of service this week, including a ban on sexually-explicit videos. 

The rules state that videos of sex acts (whether they're alone, with other people or with objects) are forbidden. That includes sexually explicit animations. 

However, nudity is still allowed as long as it's artistic, educational or a documentary. Even sexually suggestive content is welcome, but only if it's clothed. 
Twitter will rely on Vine users to report sexually explicit content rather than policing the site. Those who are flagged for sexual content can have their accounts suspended until the content is removed. 

But Twitter is already contacting Vine users with existing sexual content, which was posted before the rules changed. The company is seeking mass removal of any pornographic content, or users have the option to move their sexy videos to a new tool created by Twitter. This tool is only available to users to posted porn before the change in rules. 

Vine is a video-sharing service that allows Twitter and Vine users to share short video clips with one another. The minimum age for using Vine, according to Twitter, is 17 years old.

Fuck, you completely missed the point. I was being sarcastic. He was mocking parents who don't want their kids to see porn. The people posting themselves wanking or whatever on Vine that this move is intended to block are doing it specifically because they hope a little girl would be watching. If you are against Vine being able to police what is shown there, you are suspect, in my book.

No, I didn't miss your point at all. You went way across the line and made it personal, creepy and really disgusting. I'd break your fucking neck if I could get my hands on you.
