X’s new rules to allow pornographic content

X’s new rules to allow pornographic content


The social network is Elon Musk’s company.

“We believe in the autonomy of adults to communicate and create content that reflects their own beliefs, desires and experiences related to sexuality,” says a statement from X, a platform formerly known as Twitter.

One of the new moves Musk came up with was Twitter Blue (now X Premium), which allows users to sell additional content to followers who are willing to pay.

These types of subscriptions could provide another form of income for X, which has seen its ad revenue plummet after Musk’s acquisition and his controversial actions.

Users who “regularly post” adult content will now be required by the site to adjust their settings to mark the images and videos they post as sensitive content.

Pornography and AI

The company also points out in its statement that this “adult content” also applies to AI-generated photographic or animated content such as cartoons, hentai or anime.

Users who are under the age of 18 or who do not enter their date of birth in their profile cannot “click” on pornographic content.

The new rules also ban content that “promotes exploitation, lack of consent, objectification, sexualization or conduct that is harmful to minors and obscene”.

Violent content

After the report was published, an X account dedicated to safety posted: “We have introduced adult content and violent content policies to provide greater clarity to our rules and transparency in the use of these areas. These policies replace our previous policies on sensitive media and violent speech.

“Violent content includes violent speech and violent media, allowing for a holistic approach to combating violence in all its forms,” ​​the message explains.

Since Musk’s arrival, after buying the network for $44 billion in 2022, X’s rules have been softened and the president has removed vetoes of many accounts, including former US President Donald Trump.
