Vine No Longer Listed In 'Editor's Choice' Section In App Store On iPhone

Twitter's video-sharing app Vine is no longer listed in the "Editor's Choice" section in the App Store on iPhone. The app had a featured spot as recently as this morning.

This follows news that Vine accidentally featured a pornographic video to all users this morning. Twitter said in a statement that the pornographic video was featured due to user error.

As of this writing, Vine is still available for download.

According to Apple's developer guidelines, apps " that contain user generated content that is frequently pornographic" are not allowed in the App Store.

There is a lot of user-generated pornographic content on Vine and you can easily find it by searching through hashtags such as "#sex" or "#porn."

Vine launched last week to a lot of fanfare from the tech press. The app lets you share short, six-second videos with your friends.

Apple declined to comment.

We're still waiting to hear back from Twitter.
