The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre has confirmed that it has received reports about several Twitter accounts that allegedly showed indecent images of children.
We have received around 30 reports to the Centre about these Twitter accounts. These accounts have now been disabled by Twitter.
Twitter are obliged by law to send details of any accounts containing indecent images of children to The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) in the US.
NCMEC will then forward information for investigation to law enforcement agencies in the relevant country where the user is believed to be based or children believed to be at risk.
