A slow death
May 23, 2008 Comments Off on A slow death
If you have to rely on twitter to switch of your lights, you’re in for a big electricity bill! Twitter seems to be down more often than it’s up… dire service, and I guess more and more will stop using it.
And it seems Twitter has some more serious issues.
The harassment, while horrible, isn’t the real story here. The story is Twitter’s complete and utter failure to do anything about it.
Waldman found herself sending Twitter reps explicit examples of abusive language directed towards her and in response (after a few days, mind you) she would receive back replies stating that while other users were in fact being “mean” to her, they weren’t doing anything wrong. I won’t repeat all the words thrown at her, but it certainly makes you question what Twitter’s definition of “abuse” is.
