A small way to help fight the media stereotype of sex workers

15 posts in this topic

This definitely has the potential to be a huge tool in the fight against those who seek to further criminalize consenting adults engaging with each other in private and more importantly to expose sex worker haters!

Nice idea, but sadly those reading my tweets are already likely to be sex worker positive!

That is undoubtedly true Lydia, but I guess that the point of using the hashtag is so that  a collation of similar tweets from a wide range of sex workers can be gathered together  and promoted within constituencies who may have been served unrealistic views of the world of sex workers but who are not so ideologically "anti" that they wouldn't appreciate some more balanced and varied insights into the world of sex work for many of its practitioners.

I thought that it was a good idea, and the tweets read well.

I did a few today on my account, @MissFayeSummers. :) I think it's a lovely idea.

Loved your tweets with the hashtag #iamasexworkerandiam Faye, but when I go to https://twitter.com/hashtag/iamasexworkerandiam?src=hash&lang=en I don't see yours listed there, even though yours were tweeted 19 hours ago and the list at the aforementioned link includes tweets posted between 20 minutes and 22 hours ago.

I wonder why.

Ah, this link retrieves a lot more of the #iamasexworkerandiam tweets, including all yours Faye.

https://twitter.com/hashtag/iamasexworkerandiam?f=tweets&vertical=default&src=hash&lang=en

The previous link I gave corresponds to the default search results on Twitter for this hashtag which defaults to the "Top" tab. To get the more complete list of results that the above link retrieves, you have to click on the "Live" tab.   

Not sure what Twitter defines as "Top" results. Can anyone more knowledgeable about Twitter shed any light?

...I honestly sometimes wonder whether just as escorting is the 'oldest profession' so too is shaming (escort and punter) the oldest prerogative of sex negative elites (legal, political) and comes with the territory for both -  I am probably to politically incorrect for my own good - but I love the word 'whore' and don't mind in the slightest being a 'John' and truth be told rather enjoy the 'subversion' - I'd hate us all to be too 'out and proud' as I like being 'in and proud.'

How bizarre! I honestly have no idea myself; I'm still relatively new to Twitter and feel like I'm still figuring it out! 

It's been so lovely though reading through what others have said. We are a very diverse and interesting bunch! :)

There are now a humungous number of tweets with this hashtag. As you scroll down to what appears to be the bottom of the list, suddenly more appear, again and again.

It would be nice to know, at any given moment in time:

  • How many total tweets have been posted to date with this hashtag
  • How many individual tweeters have posted using this hashtag

Does anyone know if there is any way to extract this information from the Twitter user interface?

Have no idea how you'd do that sorry, but there is a hell of a lot! 

I enjoy reading through them it's fab! :D
