Big Tech pedophilia: Twitter sued for refusing to remove child porn

Do you ever wonder what sort of person feels comfortable suppressing free speech of those they disagree with?

Here’s a good story from the New York Post:

Twitter refused to take down widely shared pornographic images and videos of a teenage sex trafficking victim because an investigation “didn’t find a violation” of the company’s “policies,” a scathing lawsuit alleges.

The federal suit, filed Wednesday by the victim and his mother in the Northern District of California, alleges Twitter made money off the clips, which showed a 13-year-old engaged in sex acts and are a form of child sexual abuse material, or child porn, the suit states.

[…]at some point in 2019, the videos surfaced on Twitter under two accounts that were known to share child sexual abuse material, court papers allege.

Over the next month, the videos would be reported to Twitter at least three times — first on Dec. 25, 2019 — but the tech giant failed to do anything about it until a federal law enforcement officer got involved, the suit states.

Doe became aware of the tweets in January 2020 because they’d been viewed widely by his classmates, which subjected him to “teasing, harassment, vicious bullying” and led him to become “suicidal,” court records show.

While Doe’s parents contacted the school and made police reports, he filed a complaint with Twitter, saying there were two tweets depicting child pornography of himself and they needed to be removed because they were illegal, harmful and were in violation of the site’s policies.

A support agent followed up and asked for a copy of Doe’s ID so they could prove it was him and after the teen complied, there was no response for a week, the family claims.

Around the same time, Doe’s mother filed two complaints to Twitter reporting the same material and for a week, she also received no response, the suit states.

Finally on Jan. 28, Twitter replied to Doe and said they wouldn’t be taking down the material, which had already racked up over 167,000 views and 2,223 retweets, the suit states.

“Thanks for reaching out. We’ve reviewed the content, and didn’t find a violation of our policies, so no action will be taken at this time,” the response reads, according to the lawsuit.

[…]He even included his case number from a local law enforcement agency, but still the tech giant allegedly ignored him and refused to do anything about the illegal child sexual abuse material — as it continued to rack up more and more views.

Morality isn’t free. There has to be some sort of rational grounding for it. Something that is sorely lacking about the secular leftists who dominate leadership positions at Big Tech corporations.

  1. People with zero morals. I hope Doe’s family sues their pants off, literally.

    It takes especially sick people to consider child porn ok while Orange Man Bad, but these are the same people ok with bio males in female bathrooms.

    I don’t even want a self claimed bio female in the bathroom with me. That’s a lawsuit waiting to happen.

  2. It’s too bad that Doe’s family was forced to file suit in CA. Unfortunately that means that they will likely be fighting the court, in addition to the defendants.
