One of the most important aspects of billionaire Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter is his crackdown on illicit sexual content, including child pornography.

Twitter has long been a hub for child pornography where content moderators looked the other way as pedophiles victimized kids on the platform, preferring to use their resources to police conservative speech instead. Those policies have changed immediately under Musk.

It should come as no surprise that the fake news media sees Musk protecting children and stopping filth on the platform as some kind of problem.

NBC News published an article on Wednesday bemoaning how certain prostitutes were sad about losing their Twitter community where they could find more marks to whom they could sell their bodies for cash.

“Starting from scratch is so demoralizing and so humiliating,” said pornography actress Stephanie Michelle. “You feel like all of these platforms are laughing at us, like, ‘Haha, you think that what you have earned is worthy. Well, we can take that away from you in a flash.’”

“So much of sex worker tradition has always been word of mouth because it’s protective,” said Twitter user BotticelliBimbo, a university student who said she got into sex work because of propaganda she read from perverts on Twitter. “It’s like every other marginalized community.”

Big League Politics reported on how Twitter once explicitly allowed pedophiles to discuss the finer points of raping children in their terms of service:

Social media giant Twitter has quietly amended their terms of service to allow for “discussions related to… attraction towards minors” to be allowed on their platform.

“Discussions related to child sexual exploitation as a phenomenon or attraction towards minors are permitted, provided they don’t promote or glorify child sexual exploitation in any way,” reads Twitter’s terms of service.
