Sharing personal media, such as images or videos, can potentially violate a person’s privacy, and may lead to emotional or physical harm- Twitter says. The misuse of private media can affect everyone but can have a disproportionate effect on women, activists, dissidents, and members of minority communities.
Furthermore, Twitter also describes the following behaviors that are also not permitted:
- threatening to publicly expose someone’s private information;
- sharing information that would enable individuals to hack or gain access to someone’s private information without their consent,e.g., sharing sign-in credentials for online banking services;
- asking for or offering a bounty or financial reward in exchange for posting someone’s private information;
- asking for a bounty or financial reward in exchange for not posting someone’s private information, sometimes referred to as blackmail.
Beginning today, we will not allow the sharing of private media, such as images or videos of private individuals without their consent. Publishing people's private info is also prohibited under the policy, as is threatening or incentivizing others to do so.https://t.co/7EXvXdwegG— Twitter Safety (@TwitterSafety) November 30, 2021
