Twitter is promising to crack down on harassment and revenge-porn through tough new policy guidelines.

The company’s CEO announced the new rules in a series of tweets, calling the move a critical decision.

Incoming policy changes include permanent suspensions of accounts found to be posting violent threats, and content featuring non-consensual nudity.

User’s will also be able to alert the company of offending content through a new reporting system.

Twitter’s new guidelines are expected to be rolled-out in the coming weeks.
