Child Sex-Trafficking Victim SUES Twitter in Federal Court, Says the Site Facilitated His Abuse

Megan Fox-Opinion : Jan 22, 2021  PJMedia.com

...Not only did they refuse to take down the illegal material, Twitter claimed that the videos ... were not against its policies.

[PJMedia.com] Twitter has a long history of turning a blind eye to child porn on its site. I have been a witness to attempts to mass-report accounts on Twitter for posting videos of what appear to be minor children engaged in sex acts on the platform. Twitter doesn't do much to stop it, though it claims that child porn is against its policies. Perhaps they are too busy banning Republicans to do much about the illegal activity on Twitter—who knows?

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...
