Twitter Adds "possibly_sensitive" Field to Links with NSFW Content

Twitter Adds "possibly_sensitive" Field to Links with NSFW Content

Twitter has just announced the inclusion of a new boolean field in API responses and streams containing tweets: "possibly_sensitive". This will only apply to tweets with links such as photo and video links including those from Instagram, Twitpic and Pic.Twitter.com. 


TechCrunch - Writes Twitter developer Taylor Singletary, “Beginning today you may notice a new boolean field in API responses & streams containing tweets: “possibly_sensitive”. This new field will only surface when a tweet contains a link. The meaning of the field doesn’t pertain to the tweet content itself, but instead it is an indicator that the URL contained in the tweet may contain content or media identified as sensitive content. 

During this initial testing phase, there’s nothing you need to do with this field and the field values cannot be relied on for accuracy. In the future, we’ll have a family of additional API methods & fields for handling end-user “media settings” and possibly sensitive content.”
