I got an interesting email from Model Centro today about some changes at twitter.
Some of you may have noticed your fan and customer engagement on Twitter has gone down. It’s not just you. A large section of the adult industry is being affected. Recently, Twitter released an update that automatically enabled “safe search” on thousands of devices. Cell phones and tablets were affected by the change, causing Twitter users to no longer see your content.
So now when clients do a Twitter search for Porn or #Porn they are not being returned results. Some customers have already noticed and are making changes.
What you can do to help yourself and the community as a whole is to use your alternative social media accounts on Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, and Snapchat to inform your customers or send them to (article provided) for instructions on how to turn off the “safe search” function.
Some of your customers and potential followers might actually be missing your updates from their general feed, so sharing and educating your customers and those using Twitter can be very beneficial to your bottom line.
We are all waiting to see if Twitter begins to push more changes like this. It is one of the few times they have adjusted settings on the user end instead of just disabling the accounts they did not agree with.
To disable Safe Search, just login to Twitter with your username and password and follow these directions:
- Click on the magnifying glass
- Search for your adult term
- When your search results page loads click the overflow icon (The three blue dots in a horizontal line)
- Select “Search Settings”
- Uncheck the box for “Hiding Sensitive Content”
