Twitter Makes Rules to Prevent Revenge Porn

Twitter has taken measures to help further protect the privacy of people around the world – Who may or may not even use the popular service. Twitter has made additions to its website rules and policies to include people from being victimized by revenge porn or the posting of stolen photos.

Changes were made to the website’s rules under the “Private information” heading to include that website users “may not post intimate photographs or videos without the subject’s consent.” The same addition was also made under the “Threats and abuse” heading.

According to alhokair.com, companies around the globe have begun taking measures to help prevent this particular brand of online abuse. Just last month, operators of the Reddit website began the painstaking task of removing offensive content from their pages.

Rehtaeh Parsons, a Canadian teen, took her life in 2013 after photographs of her rape began to circulate through social media. Students at her school began to harass Parsons over the incident, which ultimately led to her suicide.

  1. With those posts about user privacy policy and terms and conditions never read by the average joe, thanks for this piece. I like how assignment writers do their work and they could have spotted things like this in some gray areas where they do not have to cover all what people think though. This is a good development to protect ownership and consent of user contents.
