Twitter bans sharing images of private individuals without their consent

Twitter has bannned the sharing of pictures and videos of private individuals without their permission, in a major policy move.

The change will mean that people can ask for pictures of themselves to be removed from the site, if they did not consent to have the images or videos shared.

Public figures will not be able to have pictures removed, unless they are being harassed, and cases where the pictures and tweets are in the public interest or “add value to public discourse” will still stay up.

It is the first major policy announcement under the company’s new chief executive, Parag Agrawal, who took over from Jack Dorsey when he stood down on Monday.
