Twitter has permanently suspended some users from the site due to online harassment and abuse towards Ghostbusters actor Leslie Jones, and will continue to suspend online bullies who violate their policies. They are also sending out warnings.
In a statement, Twitter explained, “we know many people believe we have not done enough to curb this type of behavior on Twitter. We agree […] We are continuing to invest heavily in improving our tools and enforcement systems to better allow us to identify and take faster action on abuse as it’s happening and prevent repeat offenders.”
Is it right for Twitter to suspend people? How do you police this and decide who goes and who doesn’t?
