@NYTphoto SUSPENDED after publishing photos of bodies following Dusit terrorist attack in Kenya

The photos Twitter account of the New York Times has been suspended for violation of Twitter community guidelines after publishing photos of bodies of victims of a suspected terror attack in Nairobi, Kenya.

NYT East Africa bureau chief Kumiko de Freytas-Tamura has since apologised for that lapse in editorial judgement.

Interestingly, publishing photos of dead bodies is also a common practice of Filipino “social news” site Rappler as evident in this report.

Perhaps Rappler too should be suspended on Twitter for violating its community rules.
