Digital Spy reports that due to recent events concerning rape threats on Caroline Criado-Perez, Twitter has begun working towards revamping their reporting system. They are currently working towards bringing a simpler system on reporting abusive tweets to other platforms, which has only existed on the iPhone.

Criado-Perez, a journalist and feminist, become the subject of these online attacks after she campaigned to bring celebrated writer Jane Austen’s face to the UK’s £10 banknote, in 2017, which was to replace Charles Darwin.

In the aftermath of the attack, a petition was created for Twitter to acknowledge their – shall we say – less-than-acceptable reporting system. The petition pointed out that Twitter’s current system, "requires users to search for details on how to report someone for abuse; a feature that should be available on each user’s page."

Tony Wang, Twitter’s UK’s general manager, responded to the problem:

Reporting abusive tweets will hopefully become a much easier process from now on.
