(Newser) – The makers of Vine are cleaning up after porn made its way to the forefront of the video app. Now, users have to confirm that they're at least 17 as the app warns of "age-restricted material," the Verge reports. The app, from Twitter, had previously been rated ages 12 and up. All you have to do to get the program, however, is tap "OK" when asked about your age. Today's update to the program also offers the ability to block users.
