Twitter's Anti-Harassment Play: Overdue Or Perfectly Timed?
A small nonprofit has decided to help Twitter collect data and enforce protocols concerning online threats to users on its social network.By Erik Shute | November 7, 2014
The nonprofit organization Women, Action, and the Media has joined up with Twitter to silence harassers on the social network.
Their new tool: this form found on WAM's website. It allows users who believe they're being harassed to report Twitter handles, frequency of threats and whether they fear for their safety, among other information.
Twitter already has measures in place to report inappropriate activity. The problem: Its form isn't available on the network's main pages and doesn't say whether it takes into consideration the seriousness of the case, such as rape or death threats.
