The New X content rules regarding adult content

X (formerly Twitter) has been going through plenty of changes ever since that Elon Musk fella bought the company, so this was inevitable. As spotted by TechCrunch, X has tossed in a few clauses to its rules. These new clauses allow X users to post spicy content as long as the adult content in question is consensually produced and labeled as such.

To X, adult content is “any consensually produced and distributed material depicting adult nudity or sexual behavior that is pornographic or intended to cause sexual arousal,” which also extends to animated, photographic, and AI-generated content. The new guidelines state that sexual expression can be an actual form of artistic representation and that adults should be allowed to “engage with and create content that reflects their own beliefs, desires, and experiences, including those related to sexuality.”

As to be expected, sexual content is restricted from children and any adult X users who don’t want to see content like that. Any content involving the promotion of exploitation, nonconsent, objectification, sexualization or harm to minors, and obscene behaviors is banned. Adult content also can’t be shown in highly visible places like your profile picture or your profile banner and any users who are under 18 or don’t provide their date of birth won’t be able to view adult content.

Any and all users who upload NSFW content on a regular basis will need to adjust their media settings. This will put up a content warning in front of uploaded videos and photos that needs to be acknowledged before anyone can view them. One-time content warnings can also be included in individual posts, but anyone failing to mark their posts as NSFW content will have their accounts automatically adjusted for them. X users will start seeing new adult content warnings and not the usual “sensitive media” warning that was seen in the past.

How the new X content rules can affect certain users

Before these updated guidelines, there were (and still are) quite a few X accounts that post NSFW content either as posts or as comments under posts made by popular accounts, usually as messages encouraging readers to look at the adult content present on their profile. This is done to attract people to their profiles, which usually have links to more of their accounts on websites like OnlyFans, allowing them to make money off of their posts.

With these new changes, it wouldn’t be a big surprise if the money users earned through this method began to decrease. This is because some X users won’t want to see NSFW content while they’re scrolling through their feeds to look at cute cat/dog pictures and dank memes.
