An update on our work to tackle Child Sexual Exploitation on X


Musk's X to Hire 100 Content Moderators With Focus on Child Sexual Exploitation - Bloomberg


The number of children and teenagers using X is less than 1% of active users in the United States. However, due to the fact that SNS has become a 'hunting ground' for people who sexually exploit minors, X will not tolerate any child sexual exploitation and will not tolerate minors from 2023. It is determined to become an inhospitable place for those who seek to exploit it.

X has already strengthened its policies and initiatives. For example, by fully automating the submission of information to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), we are able to send over 50,000 reports per year to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Equipped with a function to compare and detect content, it has detected 70,000 pieces of content in the six months since July 2023. Additionally, starting in December 2022, we have added the ability to completely block terms consistent with child sexual exploitation, eliminating over 2,500 keywords and phrases.

In 2024, the company plans to take these measures one step further and establish a trust and safety CoE (

Center of Excellence) in Austin, Texas.

According to news site Bloomberg, head of business operations Joe Benarroch said the company aims to hire 100 full-time content moderators.

The moderators will focus on combating child sexual exploitation, but will also help enforce other rules, including limiting hate speech and violent posts.

Please note that the start date of CoE has not been announced.
