If the relatives ask

Twitter said it will remove images or videos of dead people if their family members request it.

Twitter spokesman Nu Wexler tweeted that Twitter will remove imagery of deceased individuals in certain circumstances. Immediate family members and other authorised individuals may request the removal of images or videos of deceased individuals, from when critical injury occurs to the moments before or after death, the statement said.
