Netizens urge Elon Musk to tackle rising pornography trend on X platform

A surge in explicit content on the X platform, formerly Twitter, has prompted Nigerians to launch a social media campaign with the hashtag #BanPornonX, urging Elon Musk, the microblogging site’s owner, to take decisive action.

Netizens are calling on Musk to implement stringent measures to combat the widespread distribution of adult content, expressing concerns about potential exposure of underage users to explicit material.
