Tech analyst urges regulators to engage X on adult content policy.

Pop Out’s Digital Lead and technology expert Maximus Ametorgoh has urged legislators and communication regulators to speak with X’s owners to make sure the social networking platform’s content is suitably restricted, especially for the benefit of younger users.

Additionally, he refuted assertions that social media regulations violate people’s right to free speech.

Maximus Ametorgoh contended that although people have the freedom to express themselves, this freedom is constrained by legal and policy frameworks; as a result, freedom does not imply the absence of boundaries or restrictions, and responsible expression ought to abide by laws that have been set down.

He stated, “For a platform like X to come out with this, I think the regulators must take them on. The NCA, stakeholders and all the people involved must come together and instruct X not to allow such in Ghana’s digital space. They the platform themselves have community guidelines, likewise, countries have laws governing how you expose their citizens to certain types of content.”

This request is in reaction to X’s recent declaration of a new policy that permits users to distribute sexualized content as long as it is mutually agreed upon and appropriately labeled.

In an interview with Citi News, Mr. Ametorgoh emphasized the significance of laws that protect minors from viewing offensive material.
