Twitter became an IWF Member on 1 April 2014.
They support us in our aim to eliminate online child sexual abuse.
"The IWF's hash sharing project has added significant capacity to our ability to detect, remove and report CSAI. We're proud to be one of the first companies to deploy this powerful resource and to work closely with the IWF in developing it.”
Nick Pickles, UK Public Policy Manager, Twitter
“Twitter is proud to support the mission of the IWF and its role in disrupting the availability of child sexual abuse imagery and protecting children who are victims of sexual abuse. Our membership of the IWF and IWF's ongoing work in the UK complements other industry initiatives in the US and globally to combat child abuse and eliminate child sexual abuse images online. It is a difficult challenge but by working in partnership we can rise to meet it.”
Sinéad McSweeney, Director, Public Policy, EMEA, Twitter
“Twitter has continued to invest in our safety capability with an increased number of staff working on safety. We will continue to support Safer Internet Day and a wide range of safety NGOs around the world, as well as making further improvements to our product. Our work on child sexual exploitation also continues to develop. In 2014 we included a new process for child sexual exploitation material, putting users just two clicks away from a dedicated form to report this content. As part of the #WeProtect initiative we will begin using the IWF hash database in 2015, as well as supporting the IWF’s campaign to encourage young men to report child sexual abuse material. Twitter continues to engage with groups around the world, including the IWF and Thorn, to tackle this important issue and the world of NGOs is key in making the internet safer.”
