Topic - Twitter abuse

ablackett - on 28 Jul 2013
Reading this news story about the abuse Caroline Criado-Perez got on twitter. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-23477130 I took a look at her account. https://twitter.com/CCriadoPerez

The one thing that struck me was that she was responding to lots of the negative comments, which would encourage others to have a go. It looks to me like if she had just clicked block and ignored the first threat she had received it would have perhaps been the only one.

Reminded me a bit of school yard bullying, my advise to people receiving abuse is always to ignore and come and tell someone. Fight back and things always get worse.

I'm not saying this is her fault and it is obviously wrong to post threats to people online of any type.
