Like all social media platforms, Twitter bans depictions of child sexual exploitation and suspended more than a million accounts for violating this rule in the last year alone. However, ads on Twitter have appeared alongside posts soliciting child pornography, prompting major brands and advertisers to pull their campaigns from the platform, according to media reports.

Tweets containing keywords related to “rape” and “teenagers” appeared alongside promoted tweets from corporate advertisers such as Coca-Cola Co and Walt Disney Co, according to research by Ghost Data, a group cybersecurity agency that identified more than 500 accounts that shared or requested child sexual abuse material over a 20-day period this month.

Reuters, which could not independently verify the group’s findings, conducted its own review of “dozens” of accounts that remained online despite the solicitation of illegal material related to child pornography. The outlet reported that at least 30 advertisers appeared next to the profile pages of Twitter accounts selling and soliciting child pornography material.
Twitter began notifying advertisers on Wednesday that they discovered their ads were running on inappropriate profiles and is investigating how many people the ads were able to reach. In a separate email, Twitter defended itself:

“We are working closely with our customers and partners to investigate the situation and take appropriate action to prevent it from happening again in the future.”

Citing Ghost Data, Reuters noted that the majority of the 500 accounts identified as dealing with illicit material have not been removed.

“We are horrified,” David Maddocks, brand president at Cole Haan, told Reuters after being told the company’s ads were appearing alongside those tweets. “Twitter will either fix this problem or we will fix it any way we can, which includes not buying Twitter ads.”

Other major advertisers, such as Dyson, Mazda and Ecolab, have already removed their advertising material from parts of the social media platform, not wanting to risk appearing alongside illegal material.

A Disney spokesperson called the content “objectionable” and said they are “increasing efforts to ensure that the digital platforms we advertise on and the media buyers we use are stepping up their efforts to prevent such errors from happening again”.
