Bikinis, Lads’ Mags and Troll-Hunting

No Comments

This weekend saw a new low in the depths to which some people will go to cause offense, hurt and upset to others via forms of social networking such as Twitter. On Saturday, the UK’s Twitter lead, Tony Wang, publicly apologised over the head of the weekend’s ‘Trolling’ incidents where certain individuals abused women. Wang said,

“I personally apologize to the women who have experienced abuse on Twitter and for what they have gone through.”

The abuse they’ve received is simply not acceptable. It’s not acceptable in the real world, and it’s not acceptable on Twitter.”
