Twitter has a problem with child pornography. In 2012, the Guardian published an op-ed piece about Twitter failing to police an account containing child porn for several days after it was reported multiple times. Since then, Twitter has publicly stated that they will take measures to immediately ban and remove any accounts containing CP. Fast forward to now. Throughout the election, a hacker who has gone by various iterations of the handle “@0hour” has flooded the social network with all sorts of interesting and shocking things – including pictures of Bill Clinton with a young woman on what appears to be a private jet, as well as several photos purported to be clothed yet provocatively posed underage girls on Jeff Epstein’s “orgy island” (not posting). @0hour has been promptly banned by @Jack after tweeting these bombshells, and each time he creates a new account.
This week, “@0hour” (with his new account) started exposing a massive number of twitter accounts with openly displayed child porn, which Twitter has allowed to operate in broad daylight. After @0hour’s first several tweets, other Twitter users began sending him more and more CP related accounts – over 1000 by his count.
In response, Twitter immediately banned @0hour. The worst part? Many of the child porn accounts @0hour exposed were still operational long after the @0hour handle was banned.
Not only that, @0hour isn’t the only one who was banned for exposing child porn Twitter accounts… WHAT. THE. FUCK. @JACK?

Below are some of the tweets I took screenshots of after this whole thing unfolded. I’ve scrubbed the child porn handles. If you want to see more, just search twitter for #twittergate. @0hour is now going by @Caspers__ghost
Why would Twitter suppress this information – banning the whistleblower instead of the pedos? This is unprecedented, and equivalent to aiding and abetting. Is @Jack silencing embarrassing bombshells like this in an attempt to salvage shareholder value to attract bidders (Disney?) that can save them from a death spiral?Comments »
