Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) officers arrested 12 Thai Twitter stars for promoting supplements for erectile dysfunction (ED) through pornographic content on the social media platform.

Officers from the Technology Crime Suppression Division of the CIB tracked down and arrested the Thai sex creators who shared their explicit pictures and videos on social media to prevent Thai children and teenagers from accessing them.

The operation led to the discovery of a group of sex creators who shared pornography through the X or Twitter platform. Some of them made a profit by collecting membership fees, while others advertised sex-related products in their explicit content.

Most of the products were medicines and supplements for ED. The Twitter stars shared videos of sexual activity, or masturbation, a message that the drug or supplement would improve their sexual performance and allow them to last longer.
