Twitter To Crack Down On Revenge Porn Ahead Of Senate Intel Committee Hearing

Tyler Durden's picture

Via StockBoardAsset.com,

Last week, Twitter Safety released ‘a calendar of our safety work’ in approach to make the social media platform a much safer place. Twitter’s blog indicates “far too often in the past we’ve said we’d do better and promised transparency but have fallen short in our efforts”. The timeline will include regular and real-time updates about safety changes and overall progress of the social media channel to provide transparency. The blog also indicates “this is the first time we’ve shared this level of visibility into our work”.

According to Ars Technica, Twitter’s transformation will begin this Thursday–

On October 27, Twitter will expand what types of “non-consensual nudity” (aka “revenge porn”) that it takes action against. The company will already act when a victim complains, but Twitter will soon act even in cases where the victims may not be aware images were taken, instances like upskirt photos and hidden webcams. “Anyone we identify as the original poster of non-consensual nudity will be suspended immediately,” 

What is Revenge Porn?

The term ‘revenge porn,’ though frequently used, is somewhat misleading. Many perpetrators are not motivated by revenge or by any personal feelings toward the victim. A more accurate term is nonconsensual pornography (NCP), defined as the distribution of sexually graphic images of individuals without their consent.

As of June 08, 2017, C.A. GOLDBERG, PLLC, who focuses in the areas of revenge porn, domestic violence, sexual assault, & public figure crises says about 38 US states have adopted ‘revenge porn laws’. Interesting enough, Alabama, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Massachusetts, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New York, and South Caroline do not have ‘revenge porn laws’.

Here are various states and the penalties for revenge porn…

Revenge porn search term in the United States has been an explosive trend over the past 5-6 years. States such as Maine, West Virginia, and Kentucky have the highest interest by region.

Unfortunately, millions of Americans idolize Hollywood, who have been actively promoting revenge porn for the world to see. The latest story is Rob Kardashian posting nude pictures of Blac Chyna…

Back to the Twitter’s blog post, where the social media platform has outlined 4-months of proposed transparency in attempt to make the platform a much safer place. After Thursday, on November 03, Twitter will suspend organizations and groups who have a history for advocating violence . This will include banning hate imagery in profile headers and avatars, along with banning “hateful display names”.

Most social media channels are in damage control ahead of the Senate Intelligence Committee to testify in a public hearing November 01 about Russian interference in the 2016 election. Twitter has felt the need to become more ‘transparent’ and tackle revenge porn ahead of the meeting.

Here are questions we ask: 

  1. Why does Twitter suddenly care about revenge porn?

  2. Is it because of the Senate Intelligence Committee meeting?

Maybe these little whores shouldn't allow themselves to be photographed or videotaped in the first place.

"Yes, I posted a nude pic of that chick, but she self Identifies as a horse, so it's an animal picture!"

I consider revenge porn to be revenge against the photographer for being unable to portray sex/love making as the beautiful, life- and love-affirming and creating event that it is.  98% of porn out there is disgusting, loveless, carnal brutality against women.  Seriously:  When was the last time you heard someone say "I love you", never mind expressing the feelings of reverance, worship, and oneness in a porn video? (...and I'm not asking for Byron or Shelley in the moment, but just some appropriate loving dialog).

Have you ever asked why we can not have an explicit movie about love, sex, pregnancy, childbirth, nursing, and family?  Do people fear this or fear to capture it in images like primatives?  Do, deep down, people find these acts, or their motivations to them disgusting, and perhaps themselves undeserving of them, or jealous of seeing people who have them?

The "porn" I've shot with my wife I'd be happy for the whole world to see.

Reading through their written outline and legislative agenda, I see that the Senate Intel Committee intends to investigate your avatar as Russian subversion.

FYI.

I had a beautiful woman I lived with for a year or so...40 years ago. I made a big mistake and left her. After 40 years I've found a woman I can deal with again. Believe me. It takes that long!
