Twitter today launched a new Vine app aimed at a younger audience.
Vine Kids is now available for iPhone users, offering a range of hand-picked six-second videos. This means that inappropriate content will be filtered out. There’s no swearing, twerking or other forms of adult content. A group of animated characters also host the app.
Vine’s Carolyn Penner in a blog post acknowledged that kids enjoy using Vine. However, the team noted that not all content posted on the short video sharing site were appropriate for children. So, two staff members developed it during the company’s “Hack Week.”
As you would expect, Vine Kids features a range of adorable critters, animated aliens, and Elmo from Sesame Street makes an appearance. Swiping left or right on the screen shows the next Vine, while tapping the screen causes a “quirky” sound to be played.
The Vine Kids app is currently available for free from the App Store.
