Popular microblogging social network Twitter has said it will now officially comply with requests from family members to remove pictures and videos of the recently dead.
A spokesperson, Nu Wexler, said that Twitter will remove imagery of the dead in "certain circumstances" and will so so to "respect the wishes of loved ones." "When reviewing such media removal requests," Wexler said, "Twitter considers public interest factors such as the newsworthiness of the content and may not be able to honor every request."
However, family members will be expected to provide documentation that proves they're within rights to make the request. These requests will be valid from "when critical injury occurs to the moments before or after death," Twitter morbidly outlined.
