Non-public figures can ask Twitter to remove photos or videos of them that have been shared without their permission. Twitter announced new guidelines on Tuesday that prohibit users from posting private photographs of others without their knowledge, a tightening of the network’s policy just one day after changing Twitter CEO.

People who are not famous celebrities can now ask Twitter to remove photos or videos of them that were shared without their consent, according to the new regulations.

When media and accompanying tweet text are provided in the public interest or bring value to the public conversation, Twitter says this policy does not apply to public figures or individuals.

The company added “We will always try to assess the context in which the content is shared and, in such cases, we may allow the images or videos to remain on the service,”
