Twitter has announced a new button for its suite of apps, that makes it easier for people to troll celebrities and the vulnerable.
The ‘death threat’ button works in a similar way to the ‘like’ button on Facebook, seen by many as a ‘killer feature’.
“Social media is a very important way of judging your popularity”, said Ken Swansong of Twitter. “But what if you read a tweet you disagree with, and then find it was written by a woman?”
“With this ‘fix’ there’s no need to strain your limited mental capacity by stringing a half-sentence of bile-filled anger together. Just click the skull and crossbones, and let the world know what sort of man you are.”
