Twitter disallows sharing of “private media” without consent

  • In an effort to make its anti-harassment policies more robust, Twitter has updated its private information policy to disallow users from posting photos and videos of private people without their permission.
  • The move comes a day after 37-year-old Parag Agrawal took over as the CEO, replacing co-founder Jack Dorsey.
  • While this does not mean that users uploading photos of private individuals will need to submit a consent form while posting, Twitter will take action when anyone reports a violation of the policy.
