San Francisco, Feb 7: Denouncing the posting of deepfakes — fake porn videos of celebrities created with a machine learning algorithm — Twitter has booted out the makers and consumers of such content on the platfrom.

“We will suspend any account we identify as the origil poster of intimate media that has been produced or distributed without the subject’s consent. We will also suspend any account dedicated to posting this type of content,” US tech website Motherboard quoted a Twitter spokesperson as saying late Tuesday.

Deepfakes are in violation of Twitter’s terms of use, according to which, “you may not post or share intimate photos or videos of someone that were produced or distributed without their consent”.

As a part of the drive, Twitter also suspended @mydeepfakes — an account that posts deepfakes on the platform. (IANS)
