TWITTER ANNOUNCED THEY are to tackle the issue of trolling as they rolled out a raft of changes.

The firm said that there will be three new initiatives: stopping the creation of new abusive accounts, safer search results, and collapsing potentially abusive or low-quality tweets.

The changes come in the wake of complaints by users who said they were being abused by accounts set up specifically with the aim of attacking them online.

So today we’re asking:  Do online trolls put you off using social media?


Poll Results:

Yes (3926)
No  (3673)
