Twitter UK has issued a statement about online abuse in the wake of the racism and threats received by former footballer and pundit Stan Collymore on the social network.
We cannot stop people from saying offensive, hurtful things on the Internet or on Twitter. But we take action when content is reported to us that breaks our rules or is illegal.

We continue to invest in technologies that will give people more ways to customise their Twitter experience.
