One new article link has been added to our Related News page. Engadget published an article titled Twitter makes it easier to report threats to the police.
While Twitter has already simplified reporting abusive tweets, that’s not enough if you’re facing a very serious threat — you want something that the police can use to get an arrest or restraining order. Thankfully, Twitter has delivered something that might help. A new email option lets you send yourself a copy of a threat report that you can take to law enforcement. While it only provides a basic summary of what happened, it both serves as an official record and helps officers understand what to do if they need private account information to make a bust.
