The micro-blogging site X (formerly Twitter) has updated its rules to officially allow adult content, including consensually produced and distributed nudity and sexual behavior.

The @Safety account tweeted saying, “We have launched Adult Content and Violent Content policies to bring more clarity of our Rules and transparency into enforcement of these areas. These policies replace our former Sensitive Media and Violent Speech policies – but what we enforce against hasn’t changed.”

X’s updated guidelines, as spotted by TechCrunch, permit users to share adult material as long as it adheres to specific conditions:

  • Labeling: All adult content must be clearly marked as sensitive.
  • Placement: Sensitive content cannot be used in profile pictures, banners, or other prominent locations.
  • Regular Posters: Users who frequently share adult content must adjust their settings to mark their posts accordingly.
  • Age Restrictions: By default, users under 18 or those who haven’t provided their birthdate will not be able to view sensitive content.

This move signifies a major departure from X’s previous policies, which strictly prohibited adult content. The platform now joins other social media giants like Reddit in allowing such content, albeit with certain restrictions.
