A recent report confirms, Twitter changing its plans and policy on the subject of content hacking. Earlier, Twitter had to delete a link related to the Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son, which had led to an outburst of controversies.
On this, the Twitter team said that the deletion was in order to protect against any violation of contents by hackers. This was followed by two more pictorial links that once again were deleted by Twitter, for it contained various private information and content hacking materials.
Twitter’s head of legal affairs, policy, trust and security, Vijaya Gadde informed that such a precautionary step had to be taken after, “ a lot of feedback.”
Jack Dorsey, Twitter’s CEO has also addressed and commented on this issue saying,
Our communication around our actions on the @nypost article was not great. And blocking URL sharing via tweet or DM with zero context as to why we’re blocking: unacceptable.
Speaking on the upcoming modification Vijaya has further mentioned two specific incorporations that it will try to implement:
- No removal of hacked content unless directly shared by hackers
2. Labelling tweets to provide context instead of blocking links from being shared on tweeter.
However, other Twitter terms remain the same as before, which means that that contents like emails or numbers once hacked will be deleted as contents immediately.
It also seems that the new policy pertaining to the content cracking still needs to be updated and might take some time of about a few weeks.
It seems that will the procession of America’s election, this late-night alteration serves to be a subject of utmost importance and also as a dutiful attempt is protecting as well as conducting a peaceful, justifiable election procedure without any hamper done by any opposition party.
Following the sudden reveal of Hunter Biden’s private materials by Trump’s personal advisor and lawyer, Rudolph W. Giuliani and Stephen K. Bannon, Twitter seems to have taken the matter seriously. For now, it is on its way for the final adaption of the content hacking policy and all we hope for, is the best for now.
