Social media platform Twitter has announced that it is reviewing ways to control consumers to prevent online abuse. The company said ‘by experimenting in early 2020, we will evaluate different options for who can respond to tweets’.
In addition to this, the company said, ‘The toughest action would be to prevent a Twitter user from sending or responding to any message’.
Online abuse is a serious problem for many social media platforms, including Twitter. Online harassment cases in Pakistan are also on the verge now.
Digital Rights Foundation (DRF) released a report titled ‘Representation of Women Politicians‘ in Pakistan’s General Elections 2018.
The DRF report made it clear that female politicians received personal retweets, while the abuse that male politicians faced was centered around political ideology.
