Twitter wants end of revenge porn

twitter

Twitter has drawn up new rules to ensure that there is less ‘ revenge porn ‘ is placed. In the user agreement is now an explicit ban on posting nude photos and videos without the consent of the one that is nude on the picture.

In the Netherlands, the Twitter rules state since yesterday: ‘ you may not place intimate photos or videos of someone that are made or distributed without permission of that person. ‘

Twitter is following other internet companies such as Reddit. Last year Reddit was the website that left nude pics on places from hacked accounts of celebrities. But it is not just celebrities who are shown naked online. Also failed relationships can lead to undesirable nude pics on the web.

As a victim now sees that he or she is unwillingly on Twitter, it is possible to place a message on Twitter. Twitter employees examine the tweet and delete the images. If anyone is more often guilty of posting nude photos of others, he has the chance that his Twitter account is blocked. That is told in various American media.

Twitter CEO Dick Costolo said last month that Twitter has allowed too long that there are people being bullied online and that he would bring change.

About Frank Scheers

Mijn geboortestad Amsterdam is een prachtig uitgangspunt voor journalistiek. Amsterdam staat voor vrijheid van meningsuiting en tolerantie. Als journalist wil ik mij vrij en zonder beperkingen kunnen uiten over hetgeen zich in Amsterdam afspeelt, maar ook in de rest van de wereld. Ik schrijf zoveel mogelijk mijn eigen content, maar scan ook de rest van de wereld af naar opvallend nieuws. Dit nieuws hoeft niet altijd breaking news te zijn. Dit kan heel interessant nieuws zijn dat even belangrijk is als breaking news, maar iets minder bekend is, maar net zo belangrijk kan zijn voor de opinievorming. Naast nieuws uit Amsterdam en wereldnieuws richt ik mij ook op fraaie artikelen over politiek, mode, luxe artikelen, gezondheid, het milieu, entertainment, life style, business, onderwijs, shopping, gastronomie, reizen et cetera. Amsterdam Today is een actief online news magazine en wij brengen artikelen in het Nederlands en in het Engels. Belangrijk om te noemen is dat Amsterdam Today zich bezig houdt met Immersive Journalism. Dat wil zeggen dat wij fascinerend nieuws brengen in combinatie met virtual reality technieken. Je ervaart dan het nieuws alsof je er zelf bij bent. My hometown Amsterdam is a wonderful starting point for journalism. Amsterdam stands for freedom of speech and tolerance. As a journalist, I can express freely and without restrictions on what is happening in Amsterdam, but also in the rest of the world. I write my own content as much as possible, but also scan the rest of the globe for striking news. This news doesn't always have to be breaking news. This can be very interesting news that is as important as breaking news, but slightly less known and just as important to the way people form their opinions. In addition to news from Amsterdam and the world news I also write about articles on politics, fashion, luxury, health, environment, entertainment, life style, business, education, shopping, wining and dining, travel and so on. Amsterdam Today is an active online news magazine and we bring articles in Dutch and in English. Important to mention is that Amsterdam Today deals with Immersive Journalism. That means that we bring fascinating news in combination with virtual reality techniques. You will experience the news as if you were there. Contact: Website | More Posts
