Twitter Can’t Remove Child Porn Despite Elon Musk’s Promise

(FamilyConservationPAC.com) – Since Elon Musk tweeted in November 2022 that “removing child exploitation is priority #1,” according to a recent New York Times investigation, Twitter has been fighting against content that promotes child sexual exploitation.

Ella Irwin, the head of safety at Twitter, asserts that she is swiftly fixing the issue, which was pervasive on the site under its former owners.

According to a recent investigation by the New York Times, child sexual abuse material (CSAM), also known as child pornography, is still accessible on the site and includes frequently shared content that officials feel is easy to identify and remove.

Since Musk took charge in late October, Twitter has failed to prevent the dissemination of harmful photos that authorities have previously flagged.

Elon Musk Vows to Crackdown on Child Pornography & Trafficking on Twitter

The corporation has stopped paying for critical detection tools for its processes and has mostly let go of people with experience handling the problem.

People have been discussing how Twitter is still a site where they can easily access the content without being discovered, according to transcripts from an anti-abuse organization that monitors watchers of child pornography.

Twitter has struggled under Musk with photos showing child abuse. To assess the company’s claims of improvement, The Times created a personal Twitter account and created an automated computer program to search the platform for the content without displaying the actual photographs, which are forbidden from being viewed.

The information was simple to access, and Twitter’s system for suggesting accounts to follow based on user activity helped promote it.

One of the suggested accounts showed a boy who was not wearing a shirt in his profile photo. The child in the image was a well-known victim of sexual assault, according to the Canadian Center for Child Protection, which helped The Times uncover exploitative content on the platform by comparing it to a database of previously identified images.

A video of a boy abusing another boy was “liked” by one of the suspicious profiles that the same person followed. The video had more than 122,000 views, over 300 retweets, and more than 2,600 likes on January 19, more than a month after it was posted to Twitter.

Twitter took down the video after receiving a complaint from the Canadian center.

According to recent allegations, Twitter and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children no longer get along. John Shehan, an official at the center, was troubled by the “high degree of turnover” at Twitter and the company’s commitment to locating and deleting child sexual abuse content from its site.

Twitter has a reciprocal connection with the center; it notifies the center of any illegal content. The center then asks Twitter to remove the offending images and accounts.

Some have questioned whether Twitter can be trusted and relied upon to safeguard underage users on its platform as a result of this.

Since becoming Elon Musk’s firm, Twitter has reportedly been slower to respond to the center’s reports of content containing sexual abuse, according to the Times.

The company’s response time before Musk took charge was more than twice as fast, according to statistics from the center, despite the center receiving fewer alerts than it did the previous year.

One things is certain, the exploitation of children must be stopped and we here at Family Conservation PAC will do our part to put an end to this evil.
