The success of onlyfans in recent years, especially because of the paid adult content it offers, it has whetted the appetite for other companies to venture into the field of selling risqué photos and videos. One of these companies was Twitterwho had his platform ready to do so, however, decided to get off at the last minute.
According to a report From The Verge, the Little Bird social network was poised to become a competitor to OnlyFans by allowing adult creators to sell subscriptions on the social media platform.
An idea that is not foreign to Twitter, since several creators publish adult content, which is not censored by the social network, since posting pornography does not violate the guidelines.
But Twitter has apparently put this project on hold after an 84-employee “red team,” designed to test the product for security flaws, found that Twitter can’t detect child sexual abuse material (CSAM) and nonconsensual nudity at scale. . Twitter also lacked tools to verify that creators and consumers of adult content were over the age of 18. According to the report, the Twitter Health team had been warning higher-ups about the platform’s CSAM issue since February 2021.
“Twitter cannot accurately detect child sexual exploitation and non-consensual nudity at scale,” Red Team concluded in April 2022.
The Red Team report “was part of a discussion, which ultimately led to us pausing the workflow for all the right reasons,” Twitter spokeswoman Katie Rosborough said.
