Twitter Suspends Fake Celebrity Porn Videos And Accounts

“We will remove any account we recognize as the initial poster of intimate content that has been distributed or produced without the consent of the subject. We will also remove any account devoted to posting this kind of material,” claimed a spokesperson of Twitter to the U.S. tech website Motherboard this week in an interview.

Deepfakes are in infringement to terms of use of Twitter, as per which you may not post or share intimate photos or videos of someone that were produced or distributed without their consent. As a fraction of the move, Twitter also removed @mydeepfakes. It is an account that promotes deepfakes on the website.

Dissimilar to Instagram and Facebook, media policy of Twitter permits adult material in tweets as long as they are flagged as sensitive material, but intimate media policy of Twitter might rule out most deepfakes, as they are normally done without consent from the individual. Short video hosting firm Gfycat, social app Discord, and adult content website Pornhub have all declared that they might not bear nonconsensual porn on their websites and particularly deepfakes. In the mean time, the deepfakes account, where all of this began, presently has 90,000 users, the report claimed.

Earlier this year, a political activist, posted a video on YouTube stating that employees of Twitter nose around in Direct Messages of users and are given money to look into “Everything You Post,” on the website. On the other hand, Twitter cleared the confusion and has declined claims stated in the clip. In a statement to the local media, the microblogging platform claimed that whatever stated in the clip is literally erroneous.
