Indonesia is threatening to shut down social media platform X if it fails to comply with regulations against adult content. The country, known for its strict rules on obscenity, has warned X and invoked the electronic information and transaction (ITE) law, which carries a potential jail sentence for spreading pornographic material. X, owned by Elon Musk, recently updated its policies to allow consensually produced adult content.
