Want to sell cocaine, ecstasy (MDMA), meth, or magic mushrooms?
Twitter might be the place for you. Also, the site does not close accounts.
We heard from one reader that he was actively proposing the sale of illegal drugs and instructing interested parties to call a UK mobile number or WhatsApp, or contact them via email, Snapchat, Wickr or Telegram. The direction of Twitter account was pointed out.
In some cases, the offending tweets even include short videos of available illegal drugs.
The following screenshot blurs the contact details of the person offering to sell drugs, but they are not obscured in the post. It’s still public on Twitter.
The email contains the names of towns in the UK where the medicine can be delivered.
So what is Twitter’s reaction to this?
After reviewing the available information,<編集済>We would like to inform you that does not violate our safety policy. We know this is not the answer you are looking for. We will notify you if this account violates our policies in the future.
That was a Twitter response on January 22nd after being informed about the account on January 19th. doing.
Of course, if Twitter actually removes the drug-selling account, a new one could pop up again within a few hours.
If Twitter does nothing about this, would the UK police be concerned? Some people think that the competent police can investigate.
