Submission + - Twitter's BBC hashtag shows visitors hardcore porn images (pcpro.co.uk) 1

Barence writes: "PC Pro has discovered an unfortunate consequence of Twitter's new image preview feature — visitors searching for the UK's national broadcaster, the BBC, are having their screens filled with highly explicit porn.

Twitter automatically displays images linked to from tweets, including searches for particular hashtags. #bbc refers to both the British Broadcasting Corporation and an abbreviation commonly used by pornography sites.

A search for that hashtag throws up graphic images with no warning of adult content, alongside trailers for Radio 1 shows and BBC nature programmes."
