Twitter Is Turning Into a Porn Site

If you love adult content and you haven’t seen Twitter porn yet, you’re surely missing out. Twitter is turning into a porn site, and the entire porn industry is on board! But is porn even allowed on the platform? What are some things that you should look out for? What are the best NSFW Twitter handles? Keep reading to find out!

The Wild West of the Social Media World

While Twitter has become a big deal in politics, helping governments to demote political and promotional hashtags and respecting the rights for free speech, the platform’s loose guidelines have allowed users to share all sorts of uncensored adult content for many years. That content is also categorized as “free speech,” and the platform is full of it.

According to its terms of service, Twitter prohibits content with sexual acts and similar types of sensitive media. However, the site rarely enforces its guidelines to censor or mark that content. Most sensitive media that gets posted on the platform has a 12+ rating instead of 18+. It’s easy to stumble onto some graphic porn while browsing completely unrelated topics. This has been addressed by protestors and activists on various occasions in the past several years.

Most recently, in 2020, there were rumors of a Twitter crackdown for all porn-related content. It caused panic among a lot of users and porn performers. Yet, the crackdown never happened. Twitter is still a leading platform for porn in the social media realm.

For roughly five years, the site has been a complete revelation for the porn industry. Producers, performers, production companies, and adult websites use it every day to gain large numbers of followers and promote their NSFW content. This could be due to the fact that Twitter is one of the last remaining major players in social media that turns a blind eye on porn. Most competitors like Instagram and Facebook strictly prohibit it. What’s more, sites that were once full of adult media, like Tumblr, have completely banned porn in recent years.

The Alter Life

Still, Twitter prohibits porn in header images in user profile photos, but members can offer their followers a porn-friendly space with lots of erotic content across a range of porn categories. As a result, Twitter has seen a surge of alt accounts made by individuals who want to hide their identities from the real world. That allows them to stay anonymous and freely express their sexuality through tweets, photos, and discussions.

That may be one reason for Twitter’s open stance towards porn. In reality, the platform has been struggling with its user growth rate and stock prices. The site is losing traction, and that could be why free-porn seekers, fake accounts, and even bots are allowed to roam free. All those alt accounts and real profiles may be helping Twitter to increase traffic.

How the Porn Industry Utilizes Twitter

If you’ve ever checked out a profile of a famous porn star on Twitter, you’ve probably seen short clips of their new videos. Those videos contain links that can take you to a website where you can buy or stream that content. And it’s not just about the videos. Porn stars can use Twitter to sell sex toys like fleshlights or dildos that replicate their genitals.

Due to a massive Twitter user base and audience, porn performers have used the platform to target the mainstream. It gives them a way to directly reach out to their fans as well as average porn consumers. But, it also allows stars like Asa Akira or Johnny Sins to give their fans a glimpse of their non-professional lives. Some estimates say that over 90% of performers have Twitter accounts. Others claim that one out of every 1,000 tweets contains adult content. Obviously, those are some whopping statistics, especially if you consider the fact that porn is not allowed on mainstream media.

When it comes to porn companies, the wide reach of Twitter allows them to build a brand and promote themselves to a large number of people, just like any other major enterprise. One of the leaders in the industry, Digital Playground, even organizes seminars for performers. That way, porn stars can learn how to reach the largest possible audience through their tweets. All of that has transformed the porn industry and the way its fans, stars, and companies take care of business.

And don’t forget Asa Akira (AsaAkira). Her memorable Twitter bio (“I have an award-winning asshole!”) will surely give you something to think about!

As we’ve said, most pro stars, as well as amateur performers, have an account where you can interact with them and enjoy their naughty content. You could even use Twitter to wish your favorite porn star a happy birthday or even thank them for their service to society.

Is It Good or Bad?

So what’s the verdict? Should mainstream media allow adult content, or should Twitter finally crackdown and delete NSFW accounts? Recently, we’ve seen PornHub take drastic measures against unverified content to combat non-consensual porn or even content made with minors. It’s possible that Twitter could follow suit. In truth, allowing anyone to use the platform for porn is an enormous risk. Also, it’s incredibly difficult to track down fake profiles, scammers, and sex workers.

But, if you love porn and you don’t have Twitter, you definitely need to check out what’s happening in the world of NSFW social media. Hopefully, Twitter will think of some way to allow porn on its site without harming the porn industry, the actors, and the fans.
