It's now coming out that Twitter employees routinely look into it's users DM's (private messages) to gather information about you.

Milo is right. You are not Twitters customers, you are the product that is sold to advertisers and special interests.

Project Veritas, are they really trying to get Trump's favorite social media tool shut down? If so, this will be the first time I support them and their quest!

Shut it down!
So you support shutting down a social media giant in order to stop our Potus from
Exercising his right to free speech? Interesting.

Something tells me your kid is going to grow to despise you. I have 3 teenage girls at home and I can tell you exactly what's going to happen with your attempt at total control over your kid's life.
They rebel.

If she hasn't left home by 17 because of your controlling her go ahead and get her a phone that you control. I have $100 that says she'll find a way to get a phone you know nothing about.

Wanting the best for our kids, and keeping them away from the bad things in life, is what all of us strive for as parents. But, forcing them to only live life the way you see it is only going to make them resent you, defy you, and seek out the things you're trying to protect them from.

Just my opinion from personal experience.

Kids do dumb things, and "parents" allow dumb things to happen.


I think more that parents are not savvy enough to find these picks and hidden things on their kids devices.

When I was younger, I got into all kinds of stuff online because my parents were not nearly internet-savvy enough to know they should have been concerned about it.

If Twitter is storing child porn and users are freely accessing and viewing it for pleasure, then something obviously be done to stop this.

What I absolutely do not agree with is what amounts to a violation of privacy/4thA solely through EO, by allowing seizure of content from a private organization without a warrant.

Deeply troubling.

I don't see a link to the EO in the OP in order to read it, though.

I absolutely guarantee you that Twitter's vast archive of pictures is being routinely sold to porn sites. Including dark web child porn sites.

George Soros made a good move (as much as I hate to say that). Twitter is in big trouble. Even if they didn't officially approve this misappropriation, turning a blind eye toward it still leaves the company liable.

It's only if it goes thru the private messaging, but then the employees are the ones with access to the images stored on the server. Perhaps this is a permissions issue in the IT dept.

Sorry but there’s no chance Twitter employees are reading your DM’s unless there’s some kind of law enforcement happening. Free access? Definitely not. That would drive everyone away from the platform.

I’m sure they do store the images, which is troublesome... but I’m unsure if DM’s would really work if they didn’t.

What a fool that guy is to out this in public instead of through some private legal action.

Every pedo hacker in the world is going to descend on twiter and get those images now that they all know that they are there.

So you are saying the employees on the video are lying about their jobs at Twitter? It's multiple videos and multiple employees claiming the same thing. Even saying there are hundreds of employees at Twitter who's job is to do this.

The images are not illegal until you download them to your hard drive. They are on some cloud somewhere, where the Twit can get the double standard : We own everything you post to our server, but we have good lawyers if that becomes problematic. They'll claim copyright protection and deny investigators access to their unique winning algorithms that don't exist, or something like that. Or claim we don't actually own the cloud, etc etc.

The law isn't common sense its technicalities and loop holes.

And my point was that for government to seize/access/confiscate those images on the server solely through EO and not through a warrant is what is deeply troubling.

**when I previously wrote "users" I meant to write "employees," which was a simple mistake on my part.

they also allow isis and hezbollah members to create accounts and recruit on twitter. so why is this a shock to anyone? its like nothing matters anymore. these rich twats will get away with it as always.



Precisely why parents now more than ever need to BE parents, and not their children's playmate / best budz. I cannot believe the pathetic responses I've been getting from people here.

Sad. Very sad.

REally, so having Twitter store the pictures of nude minors and allowing their employees access to such pictures should be blamed on the parents?... Do you work for Twitter by any chance?

The laws are very clear here.

" Images of child pornography are not protected under First Amendment rights, and are illegal contraband under federal law. Section 2256 of Title 18, United States Code, defines child pornography as any visual depiction of sexually explicit conduct involving a minor (someone under 18 years of age). Visual depictions include photographs, videos, digital or computer generated images indistinguishable from an actual minor, and images created, adapted, or modified, but appear to depict an identifiable, actual minor. Undeveloped film, undeveloped videotape, and electronically stored data that can be converted into a visual image of child pornography are also deemed illegal visual depictions under federal law.

Notably, the legal definition of sexually explicit conduct does not require that an image depict a child engaging in sexual activity. A picture of a naked child may constitute illegal child pornography if it is sufficiently sexually suggestive. Additionally, the age of consent for sexual activity in a given state is irrelevant; any depiction of a minor under 18 years of age engaging in sexually explicit conduct is illegal. "

www.justice.gov...


Twitter is committing multiple crimes here, no doubt. Just to address the above comment that the images are stored on some cloud somewhere so Twitter will get let off the hook. I don't think they'll be able to wiggle out of this one.



" Federal law prohibits the production, distribution, reception, and possession of an image of child pornography using or affecting any means or facility of interstate or foreign commerce (See 18 U.S.C. § 2251; 18 U.S.C. § 2252; 18 U.S.C. § 2252A). Specifically, Section 2251 makes it illegal to persuade, induce, entice, or coerce a minor to engage in sexually explicit conduct for purposes of producing visual depictions of that conduct. Any individual who attempts or conspires to commit a child pornography offense is also subject to prosecution under federal law.

Federal jurisdiction is implicated if the child pornography offense occurred in interstate or foreign commerce. This includes, for example, using the U.S. Mails or common carriers to transport child pornography across state or international borders. Additionally, federal jurisdiction almost always applies when the Internet is used to commit a child pornography violation. Even if the child pornography image itself did not travel across state or international borders, federal law may be implicated if the materials, such as the computer used to download the image or the CD-ROM used to store the image, originated or previously traveled in interstate or foreign commerce."



Sorry for the long post but it's pretty clear after reviewing the laws that Twitter is in serious violation.
