10 Million Users To Be Blocked Over Twitter Porn

Twitter has become a hub of sex and porn for those looking for it. You can follow your favourite porn stars for updates on their work, and the hashtags make it easier to find the kind of porn you like most of all.

It is quite hard to escape the porn you find on Twitter, whether it is the short vine videos of a woman playing with her wet pussy or the photoshoots of lacy lingerie. Many have no issue with it, but those who do are making their voices heard.

It seems that Twitter may soon be taking action to get rid of all “explicit and adult content” on the social network in an attempt to create a more family-friendly environment for all.

Purging 10 million users

According to Twitter’s website, the site has 302 million monthly active users sending roughly 500 million Tweets each day. That’s a huge number of messages, images, and videos for you to seeā€¦ and many of those contain adult content.

It is reported that roughly 10 million users on the site share this content, which is quite a high number. These could be porn stars and directors, or even just fans eager to share the sexy snaps that get shared on Twitter.

However, a tech analyst has recently come out saying that Twitter has plans to block all of those users sharing explicit and adult content on its social network.

The technology analyst Robert Peck came forward saying that “bearish investors point out that can still see users that are violating Twitter’s [terms of service] and we would expect these users will need to be purged at some point.”

He believes that any user sharing adult and explicit content will be blocked in the purge, and that things such as “inappropriate” background images will also be hit by the block, with them being removed completely.

Fighting back

As you might expect, there are many who are speaking about this supposed purge and fighting back to try and prevent it.

Mercedes Carrera, an adult actress, said that “Twitter is one of the few large social media platforms that doesn’t apply a lot of censorship rules to our images so by default it’s a network tool in the adult industry.”

Another porn star has joined the debate too. Leya Falcon said that “porn is a big part of life, whether you want to agree with that or not, and that includes social media.”

She goes on to say that “to block my freedom of expression and not be able to show the world what I am doing when I was previously able to post anything without fear of being kicked off? That’s going to hurt.”

Needless to say, thousands of others have joined the debate as to whether adult content should be so freely available on Twitter, and what should be done in the future about it.

Current policies

Currently, Twitter is one of the most open social networks, as you can share pretty much anything, as long as you label your posts and page correctly.

The only rule at the moment that some users violate is the one that relates to images, which is that users “may not use pornographic or excessively violent media” on their “profile image, header images, or background image”.

As this rule only applies to the profile itself, naughty snaps sent as Tweets and sexy vines are still totally acceptable, according to Twitter’s own rules.

In fact, the media policy itself states that “[Twitter does] not mediate content. All content should be marked appropriately as per [Twitter’s] guidelines.”

As of yet, Twitter itself hasn’t confirmed or denied whether they will be banning explicit content from their social network, but if they do it will be a huge U-turn for the website.

What this means

If Twitter does decide to do this, it will mean a total of 10 million users could face being banned from the website, the majority of which will be porn stars and the fans who retweet their images.

It would be a huge deal, as Twitter is the biggest social media network to not be so strict on what can and cannot be shared, as long as you put the correct label on it. Dripping wet pussies and big dicks can be retweeted as much as you want, as long as the warning is there telling others it contains sensitive content.

Honestly, it doesn’t seem all that likely that Twitter will be doing this. If they did, they would be alienating a huge proportion of their users, and you can certainly expect that there are many more that would stop using the site as a result.

What do you think? Should porn be banned from Twitter, or is it a great way to find something new and interesting to watch? You can let us know your feelings on this topic by visiting the Escort Norway forum or by leaving a comment in the box below.
