'Twitter NSFW Ban' Could Be Coming, Sex Workers Warn Twitter further reserves the right to remove any adult material “that depicts violent sexual conduct or gratuitous gore anywhere,” and the platform may permanently ban accounts “dedicated to posting this type of content.” While adult content is still allowed, Twitter warns that any accounts “dedicated to posting sensitive media” may face a permanent suspension if sensitive content accounts for the “majority of your activity on Twitter.” Taken to its logical conclusion, this could turn into a broader ban on NSFW content. “We prohibit violent sexual conduct to prevent the normalization of sexual assault and non-consensual violence associated with sexual acts,” Twitter states. “We prohibit gratuitous gore content because research has shown that repeated exposure to violent content online may negatively impact an individual’s wellbeing. For these reasons, you can’t share images or videos that depict violent sexual conduct or gratuitous gore on Twitter.” These policies seemingly signal risks for posting sexual material that strays from straight, heteronormative depictions of sex. Adult creators and sex workers who specialize in consensual nonconsent, Domination/submission, impact play, bondage, sadomasochism, blood play, and guro could eventually find their material banned and their accounts suspended. Sex workers and adult artists who do not violate Twitter’s “violent sexual conduct” clause but mainly post “sensitive media” could be kicked out.
