Twitter has had a pornography problem with one of its latest products article:
Twitter’s Vine Has a Porn Problem, Just Like the Rest of the Internet
Last week, Twitter debuted Vine, its new stand-alone video app. Within a few days, Twitter was met with a graphic surprise: Its darling new tool is now a porn hotspot.
Vine’s earliest videos were relatively boring. It didn’t take long for users to figure out something more interesting to share via super-short video format: #porn. (As of Monday afternoon, Vine has disabled that particular hashtag.) A graphic video even climbed to the top of Vine’s ‘Editors Picks’ before being removed.
Twitter issued a short statement to TechCrunch’s John Biggs about the sudden explosion of racy content on Vine:
Users can report videos as inappropriate within the product if they believe the content to be sensitive or inappropriate (e.g. nudity, violence, or medical procedures). Videos that have been reported as inappropriate have a warning message that a viewer must click through before viewing the video. Uploaded videos that are reported and determined to violate our guidelines will be removed from the site, and the User account that posted the video may be terminated. Please review the Vine Rules (http://vine.co/terms) for more information on these violations.
Wait, people are using the internet for porn? http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2013-01-28/twitters-vine-has-a-porn-problem-just-like-the-rest-of-the-internet
Twitter is to be commended for at least taking some steps to try to minimize this.
Sadly, pornography is growing in acceptance in the Western world at least. What was considered immoral dress in the mid-20th century is now more modest dress than many young females wear. But what Twitter has clamped down on basically are sexual-graphic videos, which should not be out for public distribution.
The end-time sorrows and troubles in Western society are still in the beginning stages (Matthew 24:5-8), and will get much worse according to the Bible (Matthew 24:21-22; 2 Timothy 3:1-7). I believe that the growing acceptance of pornography (hard and soft) and other forms immorality help weaken the USA, Canada, and their other Anglo-nations (Romans 1:18-32) and likely will also be a factor in them being vulnerable to invasion by the final Beast power that the Bible warns about (Revelation 13; Daniel 11:39; Isaiah 10:5-11). And while the Bible shows that the Beast power will be punished later (cf. Daniel 11:44; Isaiah 10:12), this does not mean that the Anglo-nations should not discourage pornography now. And I am glad Twitter at least took one or two steps to do so.
