Charlie Warzel reports:

Twitter is cracking down on the scourge of revenge porn with a series of updated rules in its privacy policy designed to make sure users don’t publish nude photos or post pictures of users engaging in sexual acts without the subject’s consent.

[…]

As of 6 p.m. ET, Twitter has changed its rules to reflect the following (all changes are in italics):

Private information: You may not publish or post other people’s private and confidential information, such as credit card numbers, street address or Social Security/National Identity numbers, without their express authorization and permission. You may not post intimate photos or videos that were taken or distributed without the subject’s consent.

The company also modified its abusive behavior policy page to include the following:

Threats and abuse: Users may not make direct, specific threats of violence against others, including threats against a person or group on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, age, or disability. In addition, users may not post intimate photos or videos that were taken or distributed without the subject’s consent.
