#TakebackTwitter hashtag calls on site to take action

Supporters of bank note campaigner Caroline Criado-Perez have helped launch a hashtag campaign under #takebackTwitter, over claims the social media network is failing to deal with threats of sexual abuse made on its site.


@zaidiinho everyone who wants twitter to be rape threat free can challenge those who use it to harass & denigrate women #takebacktwitter


#takebacktwitter I agree, better report system is needed. Too many times I have wanted to report something it's too long winded to even try


Support to @ccriadoperez threats of rape and sexual violence have no place in society #takebacktwitter
