Why does searching pornographic content in Twitter return no results? [NSFW]?

Asked by hosa (64points) 1 month ago

Today I discovered that when I enter any porn related keyword in Twitter and then look under PHOTOS or VIDEOS there is nothing! .. Try it yourself.
I know Twitter hasn’t banned porn and searching the internet for this annoyance gives me totally irrelevant results, like I’m the first person that this happened to.
Just what the f&$# is wrong with the internet..

Hello,

I would guess it’s because Twitter does not really want to host any content on its platform which would cause it to lose potential ‘eyeballs’ or advertisers (although I would wager, it would also gain some eyeballs!).

So they probably suppress any content like that, remove it through moderation or maybe even filter out this filth using smart algorithms. The amount of people who are likely to upload such content in the first place would also naturally be lower on a social media platform like Twitter anyway, I presume.

Hope that helps!
