Is Twitter Really The Place For Porn?

Porn is pretty much everywhere on the internet. There is no escaping it. Even on the innocent websites on the internet you’ll get a pop up telling you that there are singles in your area waiting to fuck, or you’ll be redirected to a hot and steamy porn site where you could lose hours just looking at videos.

When that happens it is hard to stay away from porn, and it is even worse now that porn is hitting social media. On places like Twitter you can follow your favourite porn stars and get updates about their latest work, and you might even find them sharing some exclusive and sexy snaps online.

However, lately people have been asking if Twitter is really the place for porn. Of course, here on Escort Wales we are furiously nodding while shouting “YES!” but that doesn’t mean others agree… so we have to ask ourselves and those reading this if Twitter is really the best place for porn to be, next to the websites themselves?

Following porn on Twitter

So following porn on Twitter is pretty risky business. For a start, others can see your activity and so will know that you have taken a liking to a particular porn star or style of porn, which is why you should really not use your actual Twitter account for that. Plenty of people have created secondary accounts specifically for that, so they don’t get into trouble with their family and friends for their online activity.

Well, just this week a London council has been forced to apologise when their Twitter page was found following some, as they describe them, “disgusting” pages. Basically, one of the workers either intentionally or accidentally set the social media page to follow one that promoted bestiality, which is definitely not in keeping with the Harrow Council’s “community champions” page that was used to follow it.

Of course, this is also not the first time it has happened. Last month we told you about the Lord who was found favouriting porn on Twitter, and while they say that it was just a mistake, we wonder if he thought he was using a more personal account to do it. Personally, it doesn’t bother me, but would you really want someone to know what kind of porn you watched at a glance like that?

Be careful what you use

So you might think that you have been really clever and set up a secondary account just for following your favourite porn stars and film makers on Twitter, and it might be working well for you. You might even be flirting with some hot and sexy ladies who send you sexy selfies every now and then, and you might think that Twitter is the best thing in the world because of it.

However, people still need to be careful about just what they use to access these sites, and with social media and online security being such the big issue it is right now, we need to remember to take care to log out and not use technology irresponsibly.

You might be thinking “what are you on about Lara?”, but I am basically referring to what we use to log on. Using your mobile data on your phone when you’re at work is a perfectly fine way to do it, but make sure you aren’t logged onto the work internet or you might end up in a difficult situation.

Just last month we found out that MPs had been using Parliamentary computers for porn, with many of the visits taking place on site. You can read the full article here. To summarise, there were a huge 250,000 visits, and others could see their activity. Would you be happy with your boss knowing what you got up to? If the answer is no, you might want to check you have logged out in the future, or just don’t use work resources to get access to porn. Keep your private things private and you should be totally fine in the future.

Should Twitter be used for porn?

Okay, so there have been talks and rumours going on for a while that Twitter would be removing many of the adult content that is floating around their social media page, and that they would also be taking steps to ban those who had put it there in the first place, but is that the right move to make or is there something else they could do?

Honestly, I don’t see a problem with porn being on social media. Places like Twitter give you the ability to mark the content as sensitive, which lets those viewing it know instantly that the media they are sharing might not be suitable. They then choose whether to view the context, meaning they are more likely to go “maybe now isn’t the right time” and look at it later on when they are in the comfort of their own homes.

However, there are still people using Twitter porn irresponsibly… so should we get rid of it altogether?
Should the 140 character limit on tweets be reserved purely for the A-list celebrities who have something funny to say about a cinnamon roll, or should porn stars be allowed in on the action too?

What do you think? Is Twitter really the place for porn, or does porn need to stay away from social media? You can let us know, whatever you think, either by leaving a comment in the box below or by heading over to the Escort Wales forum and joining in the discussion there. Do you use social media to keep up to date on your favourite porn stars and escorts, or is it more private than that?
