6Twitter made a big change in the privacy policy, in this way the trolls will be competed

With Parag Agrawal joining as the new CEO of Twitter and the exit of co-founder Jack Dorsey, the company seems to be making a change in policy. The social media giant has announced that it is updating its Twitter Privacy Policy to protect one's personal identity.

Social media platforms will no longer allow users to share personal media like photos and videos of another person without their permission. Twitter said that from today this step has been implemented to improve the privacy and security of users. However, it does not include media showing public figures.

Updated privacy policy will not apply to these people 

"This policy does not apply to media featuring public figures or individuals when the media and accompanying Tweet text are shared in the public interest or add value to the public discourse," the updated policy said. However, if the public figure platform notifies that a media file is intended to be hacked, it can remove the post under Twitter's new policy against 'abuseous behavior'.

"Sharing personal media, such as photos or videos, can potentially infringe on an individual's privacy and cause emotional or physical harm," Twitter posted a statement today. Twitter had already banned media files disclosing sensitive information such as address, identity and contact details.

Twitter warns against going against policy 

Twitter has warned that it will take action if an account is found to be in violation of its policy. However, there is no information about what this action could be. Earlier, Parag Agarwal had talked about the goal of 'reshape the future of public conversation' in his first public statement as CEO. As of now, it doesn't look like he's planning to go in a completely different direction from Jack Dorsey.
