We learned something new today– Twitter says that child pornography is not against their terms of service.

A 17-year-old boy asked Twitter to remove images of him when he was 13 and being exploited by predators who blackmailed him. The predator pretended to be a girl in his class and got him to send pictures of himself. Then those pictures were used to blackmail him.

He notified Twitter who refuses to remove them.

The boy is now suing Twitter, which will have to defend their right to post child pornography or settle out of court. If they settle, it could set off a whole slew of similar lawsuits.

However, if they try the case and lose, it too will set off a chain of lawsuits. They are sort of damned if they do and damned if they don’t. I can’t say that makes me sad.

Twitter allows people to talk about child rape on their platform, so why not have child porn? It seems like they give more freedom to child predators than to Trump supporters.

Let’s face it, the left and their boosters in the press and Big Tech are warped beyond repair. There is no perversion that they will not condone and no religious belief that they can’t demonize.

The National File reports:

“After initially exchanging nude content, the victim was then forced to share more, otherwise the material would be shared with his ‘parents, coach, pastor,’ and others, the traffickers threatened. Doe first complied under duress, the lawsuit notes, but then managed to block the traffickers. However, at some point in 2019, the child porn was then shared to Twitter from two accounts that were known to share this material.”

The boy known only as Doe says that he notified Twitter three times and he was told that the pictures did not violate their terms of service.

Doe wrote to Twitter after they refused to take his pictures down:

“What do you mean you don’t see a problem? We both are minors right now and were minors at the time these videos were taken. We both were 13 years of age. We were baited, harassed, and threatened to take these videos that are now being posted without our permission. We did not authorize these videos AT ALL and they need to be taken down.”

The pictures were not taken down until the Department of Homeland Security under President Trump paid them a visit.
