Although it’s a priceless tool for learning and connecting with people around the world, the internet can also be risky, especially for impressionable youth. Additionally, keeping children safe is a top need because most of them have access to smartphones. These websites run the risk of displaying offensive or unpleasant content, like comments that are aggressive, abusive, or sexual. In the middle of all of this, there has been a lot of talk over Elon Musk’s claim in a viral post that X has better safety mechanisms in place to ‘fight child exploitation.’

Post your family photos to X! We care and do more to fight child abuse than any other platform,’ wrote Elon Musk. He then added a meme with a scene from The Simpsons.

The first part of the photo features two men standing outside the facility with the caption, ‘Maybe some nice photos here.’ Interestingly, the sign above the door of the facility displays the Instagram logo.
