Twitter to Remove Photos of Dead

A week after the daughter of Robin Williams quit Twitter after receiving nasty images of him from online trolls, Twitter announced Tuesday it will remove images and videos of deceased people per the family's request. “In order to respect the wishes of loved ones, Twitter will remove imagery of deceased individuals in certain circumstances,” Twitter spokesman Nu Wexler said. Twitter did warn that it might not be able to fulfill every request, and will have to consider the newsworthiness of the content.
