Porn briefly makes 'Editor's Pick' on Twitter's Vine

The clip has been taken down but further spells out the porn problem that the video-sharing app faces.

A pornographic video briefly made Vine's "Editor Pick" list, further raising the question of whether the video-clip-sharing app has a porn problem.

The clip showed up this morning and was spotted by The Verge, before it was quickly taken down. A video featuring the "I love NY" logo is the current top editor's pick.

Vine, a Twitter app that allows people to share six-second looping video clips, launched last week with a lot of buzz. But just a few days after its launch, videos that would be deemed NSFW -- not safe for work -- began showing up on the app. Searches for #nsfw, #porn, and #sex bring up graphic results.

Today's popular porn clip was behind an NSFW filter, and people had to actively click on the screen to show the video.

To Twitter's credit, it was quick to respond.

"A human error resulted in a video with adult content becoming one of the videos in Editor's Picks, and upon realizing this mistake we removed the video immediately," said a Twitter representative. "We apologize to our users for the error."

Many wonder how long Vine will remain in Apple's App Store, given the company's strict policy over adult content and nudity. Apple reportedly removed an app called 500px because it allowed people to share nude photos with one other.
