Twitter broadens its private information policy to consist of “private media,” which describes photos and videos recorded without an individual’s consent.Previously, Twitter

‘s policy covered the sharing of private details such as contact number, addresses, and IDs.In reaction to a growing concern over

the misuse of images and videos that aren’t available somewhere else online, Twitter will now act on unauthorized personal media.Twitter states such media is used as a tool to harass, intimidate,

and expose identities of private people. “Sharing individual media, such as images or videos, can possibly breach a

individual’s personal privacy, and may cause emotional or physical damage.

    decision that the image or video has been shared without their approval.”After getting a report from an individual illustrated in the personal media, Twitter will eliminate the content.To clarify, this policy does not

    consist of media including public figures.So you can take photos of celebrities and performing artists, for instance, and share them on Twitter without violating this brand-new policy.However, there’s one exception, which is if media of a public figure is shown harmful intent.Twitter may enable unapproved media of personal individuals in instances such as the consequences of a violent occasion, or if it becomes part of a relevant occasion that’s of interest to the public.Advertisement Continue Reading Below Source: blog.Twitter.com Featured Image: Sergei Elagin/Shutterstock
