Make internet trolls and bullies accountable for their Tweets

    1. Petition by

      The Daily Telegraph

This is a Daily Telegraph (Sydney) and www.TheTelegraph.com.au petition to stop the vile and abusive trolls on Twitter that facelessly and mercilessly attack not just celebrities and sports stars but other everyday users simply for the thrill. Our goal is to push for Twitter to be obligated to work with authorities when these cowards have broken the law, bullied and abused others simply because they can, hidden by their anonymity. It’s no secret bullying – and cyber bullying – can lead to self-harm and we are determined to make a difference in the lives of people that feel helpless to stop it. People should not be forced off Twitter by trolls - that's ignoring the problem. We must stop treating the symptoms and tackle the real issue. Sign our petition and help make Twitter a better place for all users.

      not a paper I would normally read but well done to the Daily Mail for exposing these vile cowards who thought they could stay hidden away from public scrutiny while they spouted their poison

      Because it is not nearly enough to just tell the receivers of suchlike to stop being active on the internet.
