Twitter announces updated hacked materials policy

Twitter will change its hacked materials policy after the New York Post controversy. Yahoo Finance's Dan Howley discusses.

Video Transcript

JULIE HYMAN: You're looking at the fallout here from that "New York Post" controversial story earlier in the week and Twitter's decision on blocking that report. They've now said they're not going to do that anymore.

DAN HOWLEY: Yeah, what they're doing now is changing some of their rules about hacked materials. What they're saying is that they will no longer remove hacked content, unless it's shared directly by hackers or those working in concert with them.

So something like a report discussing hacked materials or covering hacked materials, having hacked materials in it, that would be allowed. But they are still going to label some of those tweets without blocking them.

But if it is something that is from, for instance, a report, it will be allowed. They do say, though, that the rules still apply if that report is sharing personally identifiable information from a hack. So that's why the "Post" story is still being kind of covered a little bit by Twitter.
