Old embeds from Vidme which was struck off of the rolls left the users feeling awkward by displaying Porn videos when they tried to read an article on some reputable websites. An expired website called Vidme ran out of business in 2017 and was brought by a porn company 5-star HD Porn, which means whichever website has Vidme reference links in will likely have porn in them.  An article released by Motherboard says, unfortunately, the websites like the Washington Post,  New York Magazine,  HuffPost, The Verge, and others have these unexpected porn embeds in their contents.

In a link rot situation, this online content or images will be deleted or broken, so the links won’t take you to the porn page. An accurate example of this situation can be after Ex-President Donald Trump was banned from Twitter when he used Twitter as a medium to start a riot at Capitol, all his tweets were wiped out completely, and the embeds of those tweets will now appear as empty gray boxes.

But, some digital data of the former president’s Twitter account must be preserved under the Presidential Records Act. Though Twitter banned Trump’s account his tweets have not completely disappeared from the face of the internet as many followers shared them on other platforms or replied to them so one way or the other some of his tweets still exist.

Many social media platforms like Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, YouTube, Reddit, etc., are following the trend of enabling embed to their content, this feature allows the readers and users to illustrate a post in their blog as a news item. When an incident like Vidme happens, it will be a very tedious task as thousands of websites may have the embeds of rot links. Well on the bright side this may increase the views for the website carrying these kinds of embeds. But jokes apart, on a serious note these kinds of incidents may malign a website’s reputation.
