Twitter bans sharing media of individuals without their consent

Social media giant Twitter updated on Tuesday its private information policy so it includes "private media," effectively banning sharing media of private individuals without their prior permission.

"...This update will allow us to take action on media that is shared without any explicit abusive content, provided it's posted without the consent of the person depicted. This is a part of our ongoing work to align our safety policies with human rights standards, and it will be enforced globally starting today," Twitter noted on its official blog page.

Further describing the updated policy, Twitter explained that it would remove private images and videos shared by third accounts on social media, providing they didn't consent to have their content shared.
