Porn Tweets Start Haunting Vine

It was supposed to make Twitter more fun but apparently other users have other things in mind. The new Vine app designed for video-sharing with iPod and iPhone is starting to have porn problems after just less than a week of being online. The use of the new app actually does not prohibit pornographic or adult content; unfortunately, Apple guidelines restrict applications with pornographic items on its App Store.

It’s Supposed to be More Fun

The app was given a go last Thursday (January 24, 2013) by Twitter as an additional video-fun feature users can enjoy. They may create six-second clips and share them immediately with their tweets. The unique way the videos run on Twitter makes it more exciting, presenting choice cuts or summaries of whole contents into short and swift clips.

But then other different minded users began using it for posting porn clips drawn through laptops and from some TV programs. Nick Bilton from New York Times had mentioned the fact about the plethora of porn and sex materials being easily available online, insinuating how easy it would be for users to post such videos on Twitter now that Vine is on—and especially without Vine mentioning anything about the matter in its terms of service.

Facebook Messenger App for Windows is Out Now for Download! And Here’s Why I’m Not Impressed Just Yet…

Granted! Facebook has already released its Facebook Messenger application for Windows and if you guys have been waiting for this – you probably want to give it shot. Messenger for Windows, as what the social network giant calls it, is actually not just a messaging app similar to the Facebook Messenger for iOS and Android handsets. It comes with additional features like getting quick notifications about what’s going on in your Facebook account and checking the latest updates from your friends right within the UI, without having to stay any longer in your web browser.

But would it really appeal to you? I guess it won’t! Though the app is still on its trial stage, I must say that Facebook probably was just forced to release the app to the public after it was leaked in the internet. Seriously, I personally don’t see any single advantage of using the app as far as efficiency and better Facebook chat experience are concerned. (more…)
