The revelations have sent shockwaves through the online community, who are repulsed that the social network is being used to produce and distribute indecent images of children.There have been concerns over the alleged censorship of whistleblowers too, as Twitter tries to remove any indecent images from the web.Many claim it was the company’s attempt to whitewash the situation.
However, Twitter explained to Molly that it had suspended her account because “regardless of intent, posting such images or links puts our users in danger of commiting a serious crime by accessing that content. This content is not allowed on Twitter and we do take action to remove it wehn it is reported to us.”
