Vine on Thursday announced an update to its Rules and Terms of Service that prohibits explicit sexual content. The Twitter-owned app says the change will affect less than 1 percent of its users. “As we’ve watched the community and your creativity grow and evolve, we’ve found that there’s a very small percentage of videos that are not a good fit for our community,” Vine explained. “We don’t have a problem with explicit sexual content on the Internet –– we just prefer not to be the source of it.” According to the new “Vine explicit sexual content FAQ” on the Twitter Help Center.If a Vine user posts something from the first list rather than the second, his or her account may be suspended. An account will only be eligible for restoration after violating posts have been removed and it complies with the new rules, but severe or repeated violations could result in a permanent suspension.
