There are tens of thousands across the planet doing this job. Called the cleaners of the net, they take turns 24 hours a day in front of screens to review the most obscene and violent videos on social networks to decide whether they should be deleted or not.
Most of them work in Manila, the Philippines. Their contract prohibits them from talking about what they do, under penalty of prosecution. Two of them agreed to meet France 2, with masked faces. One worked for Twitter, the other for Facebook. The first thing they are faced with is sexual images. “There is nudity, pornography, violence. We have to watch each video to the end to make our decision in a perfect way,” said one of them.
