The misuse of private media can affect anyone, but can have a disproportionate effect on women, activists, dissidents and members of minority communities. “

Most posts flagged as having media shared without permission will be removed when notified. The context will however be used. For example, if someone shares a photo of a friend in distress, it is unlikely to be deleted.
Twitter will also take into consideration whether the image or video is of public interest – ie. also covered by traditional media. And public figures will be exempt if the speech is also in context and does not conflict with the network’s guidelines on abusive behavior.
