In recent attempts to represent its client base better, Twitter has revealed that it will oversee the distribution of what it alludes to as ‘private media.’ The company said recently that it would impose stricter guidelines for sharing sexual photographs and recordings of others without their consent, frequently called “revenge porn”.

The new principles come in the midst of criticism about Twitter’s previous treatment of such instances. This spring, for instance, superstar Rob Kardashian posted disputable photographs of his ex, Blac Chyna, that stayed on Twitter for 30 minutes, as Business Insider revealed in July. Twitter’s past principles for substance expressed that individuals “may not post intimate photos or videos that were taken or distributed without the subject’s consent.”

The new rules present more exact details about what the company deems inappropriate, and that they will suspend user accounts that fail to comply. Some of the instances Twitter mentioned include compromising imagery of others taken by hidden cameras or other secretive methods, as well as “images or videos captured in a private setting and not intended for public distribution.” Twitter said it allows for the sharing of “some forms of consensual nudity and adult content.”

In occurrences where organization arbitrators can’t decide if explicit imagery was consensual, it will request that clients submit a report with more suitable elements. The organization said it would decimate the report and any documentation “once it is no longer needed by Twitter to evaluate the case and will not be shared with any third.”

The new policy states: “In order to help prevent teams from making a mistake and removing consensual intimate media, we may require a report from the actual subject or their authorized representative prior to taking any enforcement action. We will reply back to those reports via email and request that the subject provide documentation to verify their identity. Please note that this documentation will be destroyed once it is no longer needed by Twitter to evaluate the case and will not be shared with any third parties. We will not share any details about who reported this content with the violator.”
