Twitter has made some changes to its ‘Twitter Rules’ page with the aim to crack down on ‘revenge porn.’

The changes made by the Micro blogging platform to its rules for user behavior are to stop users from posting ‘revenge porn’ that is, posting of nude or sexual pictures of third parties without their permission.

“You may not post intimate photos or videos that were taken or distributed without the subject’s consent.” the rule read.

The change has been implemented by Twitter as an additional text at the end of its rules sections related to ‘Private Information’ and ‘Threats and Abuse.’

Users who get caught posting other people’s identifying information, intimate videos, and photos without their consent will have their accounts locked until they delete the offending posts.

Repeat offenders will get suspended from Twitter. For the revenge porn, Twitter will take stuff down without a DMCA request as long as the person complaining verifies that it’s them in the photos or videos.
