While Twitter diligently bans political opinions they don’t like, they don’t seem to be doing much about pedos blatantly trading and sharing illegal and graphic material on their platform. This is out in the open, and yet some radicals on the left are trying to suppress this information by comparing it to “pizzagate conspiracy theories” and “far-right dog whistling.” There’s no need to read between the lines or try to interpret vague symbolism cryptically added to messages here, this filth is blatantly out in the open, and those participating in it aren’t even trying to deny it. It needs to be stopped and those participating in it need to be charged.
Several large accounts on twitter have been found, and I have deployed a bot that is starting to scrape their network of tweets, retweets and replies. It uses a machine learning algorithm to recognize potentially illegal material; posts containing that material are flagged and compiled into lists that are being forwarded to law enforcement. And no, before someone tries to suggest that what I’m doing is illegal, the bot does not retain any of the images, it simply emails links to the illegal material so that it can be passed on to law enforcement.
