London, UK (PRWEB) September 09, 2013
NoBullying.com examines, in an article released today, why people are being bullied on Twitter every day.
The article looks at the recent popular cases of group bullying on Twitter, once of the most popular social networking platforms in the world.
The new cyber bullying wave also is escalating with racism, bomb threats, sexual threats and violent behaviours taking over social media platforms.
The articles notes that while Twitter has a published anti abuse policy and systems in place, it doesn't seem to be really working to prevent Cyber Bullying and abuse.
Twitter recently announced that each user can now report individual “tweets” but again, according to several experts, that doesn't seem to be the most effective method to protect users from bullying and abuse.
The truth remains, that a lot of bullies, do create fake accounts especially for bullying and abuse, even with people they don’t know personally or don’t really care for. There are several cases of celebrities being bullied on Twitter because of appearances or personal choices. Adele’s baby has been bullied on twitter because of his mother’s weight; it is in fact this terrible for some people.
