The app, previously known as Twitter, is currently displaying a brief error message indicating that news about Taylor Swift is unavailable. The exact reason for this issue is unclear, but it’s speculated to be related to the spread of AI-generated explicit images on the platform earlier this week. These images caused quite a stir among Swift’s fanbase, known as “Swifties”.
As we mentioned earlier, AI-generated images depicting the 34-year-old billionaire, Taylor Swift, in explicit scenarios were widely circulated on platform X throughout the week. While some users seemed to enjoy these images, Swift’s fans took a stand, urging others not to distribute them.
The situation escalated to such a level that it caught the attention of the White House. Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre expressed the Biden administration’s concern and indicated their intention to push for legislation against such practices. This incident underscores the need for ethical guidelines in the use of AI technology.
It appears that social media platforms are becoming increasingly cautious when it comes to protecting Taylor Swift’s image and security. For instance, a well-known Instagram account that tracked the movements of Swift’s jet was unexpectedly closed down last month.
The exact reasons behind this closure remain unclear. However, given Swift’s past experiences with stalkers, it’s plausible that social media companies are taking these issues into account.
Attempts have been made to contact both platform X and Swift’s team for further information, but there has been no response as of yet.
