Sadly a lot of the news from social media in 2015 has been related to internet trolling.
It's good to see that Twitter has updated their rules to clarify what they consider to be 'abusive behaviour and hateful conduct,' but will this actually stop online abuse?
The truth is that updated rules are meaningless unless they are strictly enforced.
Twitter announced an update to its rules that clarify what the social media company considers "abusive behavior and hateful conduct." Megan Cristina, Twitter's director of Trust and Safety, made the announcement Tuesday in a post that said the company will not tolerate behavior designed to harass, intimidate or silence another user's voice through fear.
