    Twitter sued for facilitation exploitation

    A soulless sociopathic company ignores the law and refused to take appropriate action.

    Twitter is not a passive, inactive, intermediary in the distribution of this harmful
    material; rather, Twitter has adopted an active role in the dissemination and knowing
    promotion and distribution of this harmful material. Twitter’s own policies, practices,
    business model, and technology architecture encourage and profit from the distribution of
    sexual exploitation material.
    IT IS TIME to hold TWITTER ACCOUNTABLE.

    The minor plaintiff, now 16, alleges that he found videos of his abuse on Twitter when he was 13 and under the control of sex-traffickers. When he and his parents attempted to have them removed, Twitter did nothing, according to the victim. Not only did they refuse to take down the illegal material, Twitter claimed that the videos of a minor engaged in sex acts were not against its policies.

    “As John Doe’s situation makes clear, Twitter is not committed to removing child sex abuse material from its platform. Even worse, Twitter contributes to and profits from the sexual exploitation of countless individuals because of its harmful practices and platform design,” said Peter Gentala, senior legal counsel for the National Center on Sexual Exploitation Law Center. “Despite its public expressions to the contrary, Twitter is swarming with uploaded child pornography and Twitter management does little or nothing to prevent it.”
    This is a civil action for damages under the federal Trafficking Victims’ Protection Reauthorization Act (“TVPRA”), 18 U.S.C. §§ 1591 and 1595, Failure to Report Child Sexual Abuse Material, 18 U.S.C. § 2258A, Receipt and Distribution of Child Pornography, 18 U.S.C. §§ 2252A, and related state law claims arising from Defendant’s conduct when it knowingly hosted sexual exploitation material, including child sex abuse material (referred to in some instances as child pornography), and allowed human trafficking and the dissemination of child sexual abuse material to continue on its platform, therefore profiting from the harmful and exploitive material and the traffic it draws.
    Because of Twitter’s negligence, the videos garnered 167,000 views before law enforcement was able to intervene and force the removal of the materials. This is inexcusable. What excuse does this evil platform have? If they refuse to properly address the problem, it's time to shut the site down. Twitter may end up needing to be shut down completely. Seize all it's assets in order to pay restitution to everyone who has been victimized by this evil platform.

    They must stop enforcement of lower priority issues like "bigotry" and focus on cracking down of exploitation and real crimes taking place on twitter. I'm not saying that bigotry or racism is OK but they need to prioritize real crimes first!

    This has been an ongoing issue. 8 years ago, guardian article!

    So, I have a one year old who refuses to sleep tonight. What's your excuse for being up late raging about social media?

    Twitter MUST end ALL enforcement against "racism", "hate speech", "ableism", and focus ALL of their enforcement efforts on ending exploitation which are REAL CRIMES ON STATE AND FEDERAL LEVEL.

    If they refuse to properly address the problem, it's time to shut the site down. Twitter may end up needing to be shut down completely. Seize all it's assets in order to pay restitution to everyone who has been victimized by this evil platform.

    You can keep making these shitty posts with shitty sources, but nothing is going to happen.

    Yes, twitter should actively remove all child porn from it's platform.

    But trying to equate what happened to the kid in this case with right wingers getting banned is fucking disgusting.

    Especially saying that they can't walk and chew gum at the same time, getting rid of child porn, and shitty people that are breaking their Terms of Service. He just wants to continue being fucking racist and not get banned for it.

    They have fucking limited resources. It takes time for them to process reports. Focus on getting the illegal material OFF the site first.

    I mean, you do realize that no one here is stupid, right? This is the second thread you've rage started about Twitter tonight, and not only did you spend the first whining about getting banned (and made fun of for being a snowflake) but you then start a second regarding a more serious issue that, weirdly enough, wasn't your first go to. Kinda a mystery there.

    I'm honestly done with this garbage excuse of "social media". The community is cancer. I genuinely couldn't care less about being banned from twitter. 240 characters is the dumbest idea ever. But there is very real incompetence at best or willful blindness at worse on behalf of twitter when addressing the issue of exploitation. There is no excuse why it would take this fucking long to remove illegal imagery.

    Oh, wait, you think they don't have hundreds of employees that are looking at these reports? You think it takes more than a few minutes to ban someone? Jesus fucking christ.

    Thanks for taking off your racist, sexist, transphobic hood though. And I like how you changed the post, though it is already quoted.

    Well, you OBVIOUSLY fucking care, considering how many bullshit posts you have been making about it, considering you don't know shit about what is in the constitution.

    160.000 VIEWS BEFORE IT WAS FUCKING TAKEN DOWN. You don't accumulate that much in a few fucking minutes. This shit takes HOURS. Twitter is obviously doing something really fucked up. Either fucked up priorities or willful blindness.

    So, i checked out the article he linked. I also checked out the "journalist" that wrote it.

    2 days ago she wrote an article about how awesome it was that Parler was coming back. She didn't mention all the problems parler had with keeping child porn off it's site though for some reason, though.

    For Parler, no excuses for their incompetency either. This is why I want a conditional return of Parler to Amazon and Apple with the condition being they install proper filtering systems to screen out all the illegal images.

    It isn't just that they had kiddie porn on their servers, they had incitements of violence, racism, and other things that lead to their services being fucking terminated.

    /sign how many times do I have to fucking say this? It's very difficult to tell the difference between trolling and genuine intent to cause violence. There is zero excuse for them to not have a proper filtering system in place for illegal images of children so if they want to discontinue service with parler for that reason, I'm all for it. But when it comes to people posting about how certain politicians should be killed, the lines blur between incitement and trolling.

    I don't think "I was trolling" is going to hold up in court or twitter jail, sport.

    Doesn't matter if they are fucking kidding or if they are serious, ban them all. Joking about killing anyone isn't protected speech.

    Um... yes yes it does. It's very clear in the supreme court. People have the right to express their raw emotion in the form of hate and rage against politicians that have failed them.

    The Court held that the government cannot punish inflammatory speech unless that speech is "directed to inciting or producing imminent lawless action and is likely to incite or produce such action"
