Twitter/X to Allow Adult Content

Elon Musk’s X social media platform, formerly Twitter, has announced that it will formally allow people to show consensual adult content, as long as it is clearly labeled as such. X said it is restricting adult content for children and for adult users who choose not to see it and is asking users who regularly post adult content to adjust their media settings to place all such content behind a content warning. This requires users to acknowledge that they want to see the image before they can view it.

While X is not especially popular with minors, it is available to them. This move by X highlights the importance of bills that are passing across the country requiring internet entities that allow such content to verify the age of those seeking access. Such a bill was introduced here this last session. It passed in the Assembly but died in the Senate.
