Next time you send out some freaky flicks you may want to think again. Revenge porn has been on the rise and now Twitter and Facebook has stepped in to ban #RevengePorn from their social media platform.
Revenge porn is intimate photos or videos of an individual shared without the subject’s permission. Typically exes post it on social media after a heartbreak or unfair breakup with their mate in hopes to seek revenge and embarrass the other party.
Twitter users logged in on Wednesday to a new guideline rule: “You may not post intimate photos or videos that were taken or distributed without the subject’s consent.”
Lawmakers are also moving to legislate against revenge porn around the world. The UK, multiple US states, France and elsewhere have all made sharing revenge porn a specific criminal offense.
