I don’t know about you, but I’ve adopted a habit of diligently going through the comments other people publish on my social media posts. I do it on a regular basis because there’s nothing I hate more than seeing NSFW language or insults by other people on my posts.
Vine, a short-form video sharing service owned by Twitter, is especially notorious for attracting all sorts of commenters, many of whom just spew hate.
But worry not, ladies and gents, this quick tutorial will show you how easy it actually is to remove any offending comments from your post.
Although you can’t delete comments by other people on other people’s videos, Vine’s mobile app lets you easily remove unwanted comments on your own posts.
How to delete comments on Vine
Step 1: Launch Vine on your iPhone.
Step 2: Find a comment on one of your videos that you would like to delete for good.
Step 3: Tap on the talk bubble icon below a video to see its comments.
Step 4: Swipe on the offending comment from right to left.
Step 5: Now tap the red X button. The comment is deleted immediately.
If someone is consistently spamming you in Vine comments, you should consider blocking them and reporting abusive behavior on the service.
