Twitter responsible for half of child abuse material UK investigators found on web platforms


Twitter is responsible for almost half of the child abuse material found by UK investigators being hosted openly on popular tech sites, according to figures seen by the Telegraph.

Statistics from the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) show that 49 percent of the images, videos and url links it found on social media, search engines and cloud services in the last three years were on the social network, making up 1,396 of the total 2,835 incidents found.

Child protection figures warned the each incident could represent hundreds or thousands of images or videos, as they included urls linking back to child abuse websites.
