Delete porn posts within 24 hours — FG orders Twitter and other social media Giants

The Federal Government has ordered social media giants such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp and TikTok to remove contents that display partial or full nudity, sexual acts, deep fake or revenge porn within 24 hours from their platforms.

This was contained in the recently released Code of Practice for Interactive Computer Service Platforms/Internet Intermediaries (online platforms).

According to the document, “These online platforms have to act expeditiously to remove, disable, or block access to non-consensual content that exposes a person’s private areas, full or partial n#dity, s#xual act, or revenge p#rn, where such content is targeted to [email protected], disrepute, or intimidate an individual.

A platform must acknowledge the receipt of the complaint and take down the content within 24 hours.”

The Code of Practice also instructs these platforms to take down any unlawful content upon receiving a notice from a user, or an authorised government agency.

The platforms were also asked to exercise due diligence to ensure that no unlawful content is uploaded to their platform, among others.
