Make internet trolls and bullies accountable for their Tweets

This petition had 1,153 supporters

This is a Daily Telegraph (Sydney) and 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.
