New Twitter Policy Stripes Users From Exposing Private Pics, Videos Without Consent

Following Twitter's decision to alter its standards, former Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko has hit a snag.

Twitter has instituted a new policy prohibiting users from sharing private or personal information.

This comes after the platform raised concerns about the usage of social media to harass, intimidate, and divulge private individuals' identities.

In a statement released on Tuesday, November 30, Twitter stated that it will not allow the sharing of private media of individuals without their permission.

Sonko made headlines recently after releasing video evidence containing damaging claims against the judiciary, Nairobi governor Ann Kananu, and high court judge Justice Chitembwe.

Similarly, the former Nairobi County Boss revealed confidential information regarding Governor Ann Kananu's ally Merry Nkatha through a series of audio and video recordings.

"Beginning today (Tuesday), we will not enable the sharing of private media, such as photographs or videos of private individuals, without their authorization," according to Twitter.

"Publishing people's private information, as well as threatening or pressuring others to do so, is likewise banned under the policy," the statement added.
