JUST IN – Twitter bans sharing of images or videos of private individuals without their consent, just one day after former CTO Parag Agrawal was named CEO.
“The misuse of private media can affect everyone, but can have a disproportionate effect on women, activists, dissidents, and members of minority communities,” Twitter says is the reason for its new policy in a blog post.
One theory on this is that it means rioters, other criminals will greatly benefit from increased privacy.
Imagine if there was no footage of Waukesha, Kenosha and all the crime scanners were censored. In general it might also mean noticing 👃 is shut down.
But I see this as a precedent for the global panopticon to overtly assist militants in color revolutions or hush up big inner city crimes.
Suddenly no more footage of Antifa/BLM and looters robbing high-end stores etc.
But if you’re a well-to-do white guy who could lose everything they’ll probably somehow use this against you.
I called this yesterday! Now sharing videos on Twitter is also racist!
