Say goodbye to NSFW content on Twitter this coming 2020!
Twitter will be banning porn and other NSFW content by the coming year! So we can safely say that Twitter “alter culture” will also be coming to an end this 2020.
Starting January 1, 2020, Twitter will be banning content that contains graphic violence like violent crimes, physical fights, serious physical harm, and bodily fluids (blood, semen, etc.). As well as adult content (showing full or partial nudity), any form of sexual acts, and hentai.
So ICYDK, there is a thriving alter community on Twitter for sexually expressive individuals and sex workers alike. An alter community that finds Twitter to be a safe platform for their sexually expressive alter-egos. And with this new update, the Twitter alter culture is coming to an end.
It’s Tumblr all over again…
The reason for the ban is brought about by the fear of normalizing rape culture and sexual assaults if they are left to propagate on the micro-blogging platform. But in these times of sexual openness on social media, a safe space is much needed for sexually expressive individuals. And it’s giving us flashbacks of the Tumblr NSFW ban all over again.
So ICYDK, once upon a time, Tumblr was also a safe platform for sexually expressive individuals. But that was until they rolled out new policies for porn and NSFW content. And now with Twitter doing the same, netizens are set to lose another safe platform.
Although according to GadgetMatch, you may be allowed to post NSFW content as long as they follow these rules:
“First, your content shouldn’t promote hate, terrorism, or target an individual. Secondly, you can still share produced adult-content as long as it’s consensual and your tweets are marked sensitive. If it isn’t marked sensitive, Twitter may take it down manually,”
