Twittergate: More 'massive child porn rings' emerge on following shock discovery

Daily Star Online revealed how thousands of sick accounts hosting graphic images had been exposed by a gamer known only as Molly in an incident dubbed "Twittergate" online. The indecent images of boys and girls, often accompanied by the caption "legalise 14", were flagged to Twitter. Twitter has yet to make comment in response to the claims.

In one instance, Molly claimed to have discovered the "approximate location of a woman repeatedly sexually abusing and selling her child in India".

She first made a discovery of indecent accounts on Monday afternoon, when a Twitter account named @0hours began publicly asking for them to be reported.
