Nonproft organisation, Women, Action and Media is working with Twitter to launch a tool that lets people report abuse in a bid to clamp down on harassment against women.
Twitter users will be able to fill in a form from WAM containing details of gender-related harassment and the charity will check it out and, if appropriate, escalate the complaint with Twitter within 24 hours.
WAM says: “We’re using this pilot project to learn about what kind of gendered harassment is happening on Twitter, how that harassment intersects with other kinds of harassment (racist, transphobic, etc.), and which kinds of cases Twitter is prepared (and less prepared) to respond to.”
