victims of child sexual abuse on
We offered to proactively detect and report known child sexual abuse material being shared on their platform – at no cost to them – but they declined.
They do not provide users with the ability to directly report tweets or DMs as containing child sexual abuse material, which we believe allows it to spread because it increases the time it stays up *.
Now is the time to call on Twitter, and all other online platforms, to take action and prioritize the removal of child sexual abuse material.
A single tweet can spread across the entire globe in as little as 15 seconds. This is why they need to implement better policies to ensure that known child sexual abuse material doesn’t end up on their site, and newly identified material gets removed as quickly as possible when reported.
