The head of Twitter UK, Tony Wang, has made a personal apology to the women who have experienced abuse and sexual threats on the social media platform.
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.
There is more we can and will be doing to protect our users against abuse. That is our commitment.
Caroline Criado-Perez, who came under sustained attack on Twitter after running a successful campaign to have a woman's picture placed on a new bank note, has welcomed Twitter's pledge to do more to tackle trolling and abuse on the platform, but said they could have acted quicker.

Twitter's 'report abuse' button on the iPhone application goes through to the old reporting form - what we're looking for is an overhaul of the system which sits behind the button.
The current process is lengthy, complicated and impossible to use if you're under sustained attack like I have been.
Right now, all the emphasis is on the victim, often under intense pressure, to report rather than for Twitter to track down the perpetrator and stop them.
I am, of course, pleased that they are taking on new staff. The hard facts are that this will take time, investment and properly trained and paid staff - but it's crucial they get this right.
