It's still the very early days of Vine, and yet there's already an air of stigma around Twitter's video-sharing app. 

It's still the very early days of Vine, and yet there's already an air of stigma around Twitter's video-sharing app

Plenty of porn—a few self-shots, but mostly just videos of computer screens—popped up just a few hours after the app went live, and the volume of it grew over the weekend, leading to a porn clip making its way to the curated Editor's Picks section.

Though porn is perhaps the most discussed Vine topic to date, at least in terms of media coverage, there are a few other quirks pointed out in this amusing fake App Store description of the fledgling app.

(Somewhat serendipitously, Vine was briefly featured in Apple's App Store before getting yanked after Monday's porn kerfuffle.)

The spoof app description, tweeted by @death_stairs, calls out Vine on hosting porn, turning smartphone-wielding creators into wannabe auteurs, trolling others in the comments (because there's no way to get blocked for spamming), questionable editor curation, and creating tedious stop-motion clips of eating a meal.

Samsung's response to a customer whose phone caught fire only made things worse
Damage control is a tricky thing: One wrong move can make a small crisis exponentially worse. Such is the case for Samsung, which moved to suppress YouTube evidence that its Galaxy S4 smartphone can catch fire for no reason at all, only to have the original poster call the company out for it in a second video that received five times as many views as the first.

Vine's editor's picks featured explicit "dildoplay" porn
Oh Vine. You were doing so well. It didn't take porn long to show up, but when it did, you reacted quickly. You started putting an "inappropriate content" label over much of the explicit material. But your latest porn move hasn't made many users happy.
