How to Remove Revenge Porn from Twitter 

twitterNo one should suffer the indignity of having a private picture depicting nudity, sexual behavior or otherwise activities that may be construed as “pornographic” put online without their permission.  That is called “revenge porn.” This occurs when a perpetrator posts a “pornographic” images or video without the person’s knowledge and or permission.  The perpetrator often means to embarrass, harass or otherwise taunt the victim with such images.  The victim can also be subjected to violence or threats by third parties, according the Cyber Civil Rights Initiative.

Many of the large social networks such as Twitter have banned the illegal use of revenge porn and often  have rules against posting images or videos that display nudity.  In most cases the user can report pornographic or inappropriate images by guiding their mouse over the image, clicking on the “more” icon, and then responding to questions about whether or not the material is appropriate.  Social networks will often ban or take down the pictures or videos.

Most importantly, if you see illegal activity such as child pornography, please also contact your local law enforcement agency.
