Hi guys.
I have a problem about Twitter.
I have a friend of 14 years old that yesterday used my computer to see Twitter profiles of famous football player.
Then searching on twitter he found by himself NSFW content that wasn't hide and Twitter didn't ask if the user is over 18 years old.

So he saw sensitive content and I thing can be very dangerous for him.
Once he saw this content he ask me "what is that?" " why people do that? " etc...

So my question is, how can I hide NSFW content on Twitter in order to don't make this happens again.

Thanks.

Ia citrated the google protection, but it doesn't work with Twitter, it isn't Twitter fault?
This don't happens with Instagram or Facebook.

There is plenty of garbage on all social media platforms. They are so big it's hard for them to monitor and remove quickly. In time they usually do. If you find something offensive there is usually a report option. If you don't want to see anything offensive by mistake I'd not use the service.

Someone once told me that Twitter is like sitting on your front porch and when someone walks by you may say "Hi" to them and they may talk back. It is more open. Facebook is sort of like inviting them into your house. I think Instagram would be similar to that.

Perhaps education rather than censorship might be an approach?

Cheers
