While Twitter has been cracking down on political speech over the course of the year, with the range of what is allowed to be discussed on the platform narrowing, there's one shocking thing that Twitter has decided to allow – the discussion of “attraction towards minors.”

The new update has been quietly added to Twitter's policy.

Over the last week, users have been pushing back against Twitter for suspending journalist Andy Ngo for tweeting facts about transgender deaths as well as suspending the ads of Project Veritas – an organization that has revealed Twitter's internal bias and the desire of Twitter employees to control the narrative.

When users complain about the lack of free speech on Twitter, the ability to discuss “attraction towards minors” with impunity was probably the last thing they were asking for.

The change to Twitter’s terms of service was discovered recently by Big League Politics.

However, archived versions of Twitter’s child sexual exploitation policy show that the change was actually introduced sometime between June 3 and June 7 of this year. During this time, the policy was updated to include a section that reads:

“Discussions related to child sexual exploitation as a phenomenon or attraction towards minors are permitted, provided they don’t promote or glorify child sexual exploitation in any way.”

Twitter users have expressed their dismay at discovering the policy:

This means that Twitter has been permitting these discussions for over five months and it appears that the company is outlining a clear ideological bent – creating a world where tweeting about statistical facts or referring to users by their biological gender can be punished on the platform but “attraction towards minors,” is not only overlooked – but explicitly allowed by its own policy.
