Beginning Tuesday, Nov. 30, you can no longer tweet memes, videos or images that go viral at the expense of a private individual.

Twitter’s new CEO, Parag Agrawal, has banned sharing memes, viral videos and images of private individuals without their consent.

The news comes one day after Jack Dorsey stepped down as CEO.

The new policy essentially bans memes and videos from going viral on the platform if they are of private individuals.

As you know, most viral memes and viral videos on social media are of private individuals.

According to a Twitter blog post, the new policy prohibits “Sharing personal media, such as images or videos, can potentially violate a person’s privacy, and may lead to emotional or physical harm.”

The post states the policy prevents viral memes or viral images that features “activists, dissidents, and members of minority communities.”

The new policy expands on the already existing private information policy.

Exceptions will be made for videos that go viral in certain situations “such as in the aftermath of a violent event, or as part of a newsworthy event due to public interest value.”

Violators will be dealt with by a range of enforcement options.
