Because of spammers and trolls, I often have to browse through my recent followers list on Twitter and block accounts every day. On May 27, 11:00 am, CST, I saw an account listed as “young1” and it had a provocative profile pic of a girl that could not have been more than 6-9 years old. When I went to visit the page to block it, I was in HORROR at the pics immediately visible. It was GRAPHIC sex acts being performed on LITTLE CHILDREN. I will spare the readers any further description.
I reported the account to the FBI Twitter page as well as the Twitter Support page. Twitter replied,
Thank you for your report. We do not tolerate child sexual exploitation on Twitter and partner with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) to ensure that appropriate law enforcement agencies are notified when such content is located. We will review the content you have reported as soon as possible.” Case # 33196225
As of 5:32 pm, CST, the account has NOT been removed. In fact, some of the Tweets on the account were from May of 2015. So not only has the account not been removed within several hours of myself and many others reporting the account, it has obviously been there for OVER A YEAR.
How does Twitter “not tolerate child exploitation” when the most vile accounts like this are left to lure children and the most disgusting online predators? Twitter has time to filter content and shadow ban conservatives and Christians, but leaves an account up with graphic content of children as young as 5-6 years old?
But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” Matthew 18:6
