Twitter’s ‘Child sexual exploitation policy’ allows discussion of “attraction towards minors”. While Twitter claims “We have a zero-tolerance child sexual exploitation policy on Twitter.” they state:  “Artistic depictions of nude minors in a non-sexualized context or setting may be permitted in a limited number of scenarios e.g., works by internationally renowned artists that feature minors.”

While this is Twitter’s own stated policy on the subject of child exploitation, a new group of individuals who define themselves as “Minor Attracted Persons” continue to use the platform with the hashtag #MAP, seemingly unopposed.

Since the ‘MAP’ community has re-branded themselves in large part as non-offending minor attracted persons, just having discussions online – does this mean that these accounts, which could equal into the tens of thousands – will be able to remain on the platform?

Many users are asking why thousands of accounts affiliated with QAnon have been purged form the site, while large swaths of this community remain on the platform.
