Taylor Swift hunt on X comes up empty post viral AI

January 28, 2024

TLDR: Searches for Taylor Swift on X (formerly Twitter) are currently displaying an error message after explicit AI-generated images of the singer went viral on social media. The fake images, which showed Swift in sexually suggestive and explicit positions, were circulating on X before being removed. X’s policies prohibit the sharing of manipulated or misleading media. The incident raises concerns about the use of AI-generated images and videos in disinformation efforts, particularly during an election year. The rise of artificial intelligence software has made it easier to create convincingly real and damaging images. The incident also highlights the broader issue of nonconsensual deepfake photography, with nine US states having laws against its creation or sharing.
