SAN FRANCISCO — Twitter, the one major social media platform that tolerates open sexual expression, and users who are sex workers, has unveiled a new set of Terms of Service effective January 1, 2020.

Over the past few days Twitter users have been prompted to press “agree” to the new Terms of Service, though it is safe to assume that most users have not looked in-depth into the changes from the current Terms of Service, which went into effect in March 2018.

The changes to the Twitter Terms of Service, however, might affect content uploaded by sex workers and others in the adult community.

The changes amount to about 10 lines scattered through the 12-page document.
