Legally dangerous tweet from Uganda circulating; (don't forward it)
A few weeks ago WJLA7 warned viewers about a child pornography video circulating on Facebook, and that it could be a crime to share it. The video has surely been removed.
But today I saw in my Twitter feed a post whose title seemed to hint at c.p. filmed in Uganda. The image in the video showed minimal dress but no nudity. I simply ignored it as it passed out of sight, but I realized I could have (with a little more presence of mind) reported it and unfollowed the sender.
Presumably it could be a crime to retweet such a post. Just a warning or a tip.
I don’t recall that this has happened in own input feed before. Let’s hope someone reports it and that Twitter gets rid of it quickly.
