"Beginning today, we will not allow the sharing of private media, such as images or videos of private individuals without their consent," Twitter announced on the platform. 

"Images/videos that show people participating in public events - like large scale protests, sporting events, et cetera - would generally not violate this policy," Twitter said.

This doesn’t mean that Twitter will require consent from all individuals in a photo or video before it's posted. Twitter will remove the content following a request.
