The popular microblogging service has promised to clamp down on trolls in the wake of malicious users hampering Twitter’s efforts to be a frontrunner in the online news market. Twitter announced it was committed to cleansing the service as it enters its 10th year.
According to reports, the social media service is going to introduce measures telling trolls that their undesirable communications influence the offline world along with the online community. The company plans to make it clear that trolls’ actions exist in the real world and encourage victims to expose their abusers, which is supposed to lead to eradicating trolling and improving Twitter’s reputation. The company has been valued at a reported $33bn, though it’s just a tiny part of its rival Facebook, which is valued at $250bn and accounts for more than one billion members.
This promise was made after many high-profile users, including celebrities and politicians, have removed their accounts with the company due to falling prey to trolls lurking among Twitter’s 320 million users. For example, a politician was receiving rape threats from an individual who was eventually jailed, and a mother of a murdered schoolgirl received abuse.

|you cannot get rid of any speech without destroying free speech whether you like it or not. If you cant handle the fire then leave like those that did leave... The higher the pedestal you live on, more people will see you and judge. If you have a voice that effects more people it should be judged and challenged. That is what makes you grow, makes you look at yourself and either gain confidence in yourself or change the things that should be changed...... I think people fear having to change the bad parts about themselves, they fear their flaws and keep their infant minds like most celebrities have. Spoiled rotten child minds and their voice help create more and more undeveloped thinking. This is why all this political correct speech is the most dangerous to society, its just not honest and creates weak minded people that cannot handle it when people "say bad things" and they get all emotional and cry.... I am so glad I had bullies in my life, I got stronger and smarter! stupid things dont bother me and I know how to protect myself.... Look at all the weak men in this world now acting like little flamers and cry at every obstacle that enters their life.|
|But the big, mean people say all those bad things and it makes me cry. Please make them stop, so I can continue being a soft little baby.|

|Gadzooks! Everyone is turning into a mini "Butcher of Benghazi" Hillary. Always picking on them. Not that they don't deserve it in the first place. Have to agree Tony, Free speech is what it is. Can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. No sympathies for those who see fame and glory, but not the criticism. Might want to think of building a shack somewhere in Montana and go off grid.|
|As expected, predictably biased comments from torrent users. Although I support free speech and even 'hate' speech in social media, threats of violence against someone or their family crosses the line from free speech into illegal territory. If the app didnt prevent it, then I too would close my acct. As we have the right of free speech, Twitter also has the right to change it's app in anyway it chooses.|
|@4 no one said anything about death threats. that is not free speech and it seems all you super duper sensitive PC people always got to through in the extreme BS to give reason to destroying things.... Its retarded|
|auto correct spelling mistake "throw"|
|Micro-aggressed SJW's are hastening the end of the internet. Disagreeing with someone online equals "trolling" to them. True trolling has lost its meaning (literally). Not defending real bullies or anything but Hillary-esque passive-agressive a-holes deserve a taste of their own medicine. Especially celebrities and politicians.|
|Good luck with that|

|I told a few hot ladies that i wanted to lick their vagina and i was banned...|
|when seeking to control one version of the truth you subvert everyone's interpretation of the same and enforcing it is fascism,when social networks deprive users of free speech they lose all credibility as independent parties and are then untrustworthy as having bias as are most global media companies especially the American media which has covered up time and again to keep people ignorant to things like who really flooded America with cocaine and passenger aircraft being shot down mistakenly by Naval ships on exercise etc,etc which have occurred and been covered up time and again by the media bosses.|
|<Kunty> @9 has learned the difference between fair comment and online abuse as is self evident,obviously inappropriate comments outside of a porn site or on social media whereby their comments may offend others and there is the point at which sites need to be moderated as such is not always welcomed and a ban is not unexpected,thank you <Kunty> for your example of trolling,not quite the same as removing or banning peoples comments to enforce a political view or subjective bias.
