X, new moderation team to fight child porn


Platform X will open a moderation office in Texas with a focus on combating content related to child sexual abuse. The company made this known in an official post in the hours in which it suspended searches on the platform concerning Taylor Swift and her deepfakes of a sexual nature.

Hiring

The initial goal of the “Trust and Safety Center of Excellence” in Austin will be to recruit 100 content moderators, focusing on eliminating child sexual exploitation content and other violations of the platform’s rules, explained Joe Benarroch, head of business operations. Benarroch noted that children under 13 cannot open accounts on X, while young users between the ages of 13 and 17 automatically have a private setting and cannot be targeted by advertisers.

X’s announcement comes within hours of Wednesday’s US Senate hearing on “Big Tech and the crisis of online child sexual exploitation.” The top executives of Meta, Snap, TikTok, Discord and X will testify before the Judiciary Committee. X will be represented by CEO Linda Yaccarino.
