Twitter's 'Thought Police' Sacked after REFUSING to Remove CHILD PORN from Site


Disbanding the council "a danger to free speech" claim members.


The group behind the draconian mass censorship rules of Twitter have gone. Twitter’s Trust and Safety Council is no more.


The Council was formed in 2016, bringing together key far-left organisations, academics, and activists who devised a unified censorship policy for all Twitter programmes. Although the council had no direct powers, they drafted the thought police policy that saw millions of tweets removed, and users who didn't agree with their far-left ideology banned from the site entirely. Their downfall was allowing the posting and sharing of child pornography, claiming that it didn't break their Twitter rules.


On Friday, three members of the council resigned, citing disagreements with Elon Musk over the “safety and well-being” of Twitter users under his ownership. Musk replied to a thread started by Anne Collier, one of the members who resigned from the now-dissolved body, by tweeting, “It is a crime that they [the Council] refused to take action on child exploitation for years!”


The email announcing the council's end said that Twitter’s new phase requires reevaluating how it incorporates “external insights” into its products and policy, adding that the Trust and Safety Council is “not the best structure to do this.”


The message also promises that the work on improving Twitter’s status as a safe and informative place will now accelerate and be more aggressive “than ever before.” According to the announcement about the Council’s dissolution, Twitter will continue to “welcome ideas” coming from its members.


“We will also continue to explore opportunities to provide focused and timely input into our work, whether through bilateral or small group meetings,” the email states.
