failed infantilization


screenshot from twitter, 7/24/18

Twitter is protecting me from seeing a picture of a sleeping snowy owl. Even more f***ed up, my settings are actually configured not to hide so-called sensitive content.
Twitter is the number one content source for US journalism today, and yet, it doesn't work.

Update: On second look, my twitter settings are configured not to hide so-called sensitive content but that only applies to "search." There is a second checkbox (see below) that shields my innocent eyes from "media." What about tweets that aren't media, e.g., text? Can I not be protected from people's icky words when surfing around twitter?
