Twitter bans unconsented sharing of photos, videos

New York, Nov 30 (UNI/Sputnik) Twitter announced on Tuesday that it will stop immediately the sharing of photos, videos and personal media of any of its users by another without the permission of the person depicted.
"While our existing policies and Twitter Rules cover explicit instances of abusive behavior, 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," the microblogging service said in a blog post. "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."
Privacy has become a hot-button issue in social media use with applications such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snap coming under pressure to rein in unconsented use of personal images and information of its account holders.
