Twitter has revealed that it is implementing measures to ensure that “internet trolls” are a thing of the past.
“Internet trolls” are user accounts set up to abuse and threaten other users. The increasing seriousness of cyber-bullying has forced Twitter to take action.
Twitter’s European head Bruce Daisle talked about a few of the measures yesterday.
Twitter has introduced a phone verification system which will allow Twitter determine if a user has more than one account.
Users are also encouraged to not only block trolls but share a list of blocked accounts with other users.
Twitter is implementing new measures as high profile users quit the network primarily because of trolls.
