    Facebook is a stupid conspiracy theory breeding ground and Twitter is just a retarded virtue signaling echo chamber. At least Facebook is pretty open about not really caring about what is on their platform, unlike Twitter who moderate their website but only when it's convenient.

    I'd say fair enough, but twitter has recently shown that they are perfectly capable of moderating their website. They can't see themselves as a moral authority (like they currently do) and take 0 action against this kind of stuff. And it's not like this was a single tweet that got no attention so it was hard for them to even know it existed:
    Not to mentioned that the individual in that video apparently talked to a twitter employee about this and even provided them with proof that they were underage. Like really, it's as if twitter was actively trying to keep the video up.

    Yes, machine learning algorithms aren't biased, but they can become biased based on the data they are being trained with. To say that there has been some degree of bias in Twitter's algorithms recently wouldn't be entirely accurate IMO. Without trying to get political, an example would be "election fraud" claims from both sides (one in 2016, the other in 2020). Despite both being equally unfounded and largely bs, only one was actively censored and "fact checked" in every tweet. Or the summer riots and the recent ones, twitter seemed to crack down a bit harder on "calls to violence" for one of them.
     
    I have no problem with them choosing to not want conspiracy theories and calls to violence on their platform, but those rules should be enforced without bias.

    This was discussed earlier in this thread. While the sources may not be the most credible, in one of the articles there is a link to the court filings and the case is basically what the articles are saying, so this isn't fake news.

    What you described is basically propaganda and yeah, it absolutely works.
    Well a good way to eliminate bias is to have algorithms that are biased in equal and opposite ways, so in the end the bias kind of cancels out. Not to mention that the algorithms can be tweaked by their creators if they don't work as intended, so with some tweaking, making an algorithm that isn't very biased shouldn't be that hard for a company as big as twitter.

    Technically that depends on region. Age of consent is 13 in Japan, but looked down upon. But Twitter being a US company you'd think they'd go for the whole 18+ thing.
     
    It would probably make the world a much better place. Social media in general needs to die.
     
    Or disagrees with their political views.
    Didn't all the "MAPs" (Minor attracted persons. Cute pen names make them seem less pedophilic.) go to twitter after being kicked off Instagram or something?

    Do you think the same for regular athletes too? He's probably already made a few millions off of salaries and prize winnings alone and he was on FaZe, so he already has a decent enough job set up for him as a content creator (Having FaZe in your name is probably enough to get you a few hundred viewers on twitch).

    I don't really follow COD esports so I did a quick search. This guy has been playing pro since 2013, has more than 100K followers on Twitch and is still playing COD with a mouse and keyboard (The injury only affects his ability to play with a controller). I think it's safe to say that the gamble he took most likely paid off and judging by his twitter, his plan B (streaming) seems to be working too. That comment was most likely him genuinely being disappointed that he can't compete (COD esports is controller only), because like most competitive players, he is a very competitive person.

    Guys come on. Twitter is too busy becoming a moral authority in the political world, they don't have time to stop child porn. Priorities people!

    Facebook is worse IMO, a few years ago the BBC contacted them to know why reported child porn wasn't taken down, Facebook asked for proof that the content was still on their platform, when the BBC complied, Facebook turned around and reported the BBC for child porn distribution ... so yeah ...

    EDIT ; not defending Twitter BTW, just saying, they're both horrible shitty corporation that don't give a shit about doing the correct moral thing, that in this case happens to also be illegal.

    That sounds like an excuse Twitter and Facebook came up with. There are ways to moderate it but it requires a lot of money, resources, and it would cut into profits. Youtube had and probably still has it's underground child pedo ring videos that people complained about for years and years but Youtube didn't do anything until recently.
