Just one day after Parag Agrawal was named CEO of Twitter, the monopoly social media platform is instituting sweeping new content restrictions.
Twitter is banning all “private media” from being shared on the platform without consent. This policy is being sold as a way to protect the privacy of its users, but knowing how the tech giants operate, it will likely be used to protect left-wing scum and not apply to right-wing dissidents.
“There are growing concerns about the misuse of media and information that is not available elsewhere online as a tool to harass, intimidate, and reveal the identities of individuals. Sharing personal media, such as images or videos, can potentially violate a person’s privacy, and may lead to emotional or physical harm,” Twitter wrote in their announcement of their new policy.
“The misuse of private media can affect everyone, but can have a disproportionate effect on women, activists, dissidents, and members of minority communities. When we receive a report that a Tweet contains unauthorized private media, we will now take action in line with our range of enforcement options,” they added.
