DON’T LET #TOXICTWITTER SILENCE WOMEN

Every day, women, transgender and non-binary individuals face violent threats, sexism, racism and more on Twitter. This abuse is flooding Twitter, forcing women out of public conversations - and at times, driving them off the platform. The abuse can be more intense for women of colour, women with disabilities; lesbian, bisexual, trans women, and non-binary people. 

Twitter recently said “we stand with women around the world to make their voices heard and their presence known”. But women aren’t buying it. Twitter isn’t putting their own rules on abuse and hateful conduct into practice, or showing us how they deal with abuse when it’s reported.

TWITTER CEO, JACK DORSEY,
CAN’T ALLOW THIS CONTINUE
UNDER HIS WATCH

With your help, we can all make sure Twitter becomes a safe space for movements like #MeToo and #TimesUp, and not a place where women, transgender and non-binary individuals are silenced out of fear of violence and abuse.

CEO and Co-Founder of Twitter, Jack Dorsey is the person who can make sure Twitter takes online abuse seriously. Send him an email now and hold him to his word.

Dear Jack,

I am writing to ask that Twitter takes immediate steps to enforce its own policies on hateful conduct and abuse, and tell the public how it’s responding to reports of abuse.

Twitter claims to be a beacon of free expression but its failure to adequately address rampant violence and abuse against women is silencing or forcing them off the platform. Women, transgender and non-binary individuals have the right to express themselves on Twitter equally, freely and without fear.

It is time for meaningful action and to protect women’s voices on #ToxicTwitter. So #HereWeAre urging you to:
 
   * Share meaningful information about the nature and levels of violence and abuse against women and how you respond to it.

  *  Improve reporting mechanisms and ensure a better response to complaints of violence and abuse.
 
  *  Provide more clarity about how you interpret and identify violence and abuse on the platform.
 
  *  Be more proactive in educating users and raising awareness about security and privacy features on the platform that will help women create a safer, and less toxic Twitter experience.  
 

Sincerely,
