Miley Cyrus urges Twitter bosses to ‘take responsibility’ after receiving string of chilling ‘death tweets’
True to form, the 19-year-old starlet has called out Twitter honchos after receiving a series of threatening messages on the social networking site.
She furiously demanded that they enforce special security measures after several haters urged her ‘to die’ and attacked her clothing choices.
The Hannah Montana star Tweeted Sunday night in response to a now-erased post from @TheCyrusSlut: ‘I’m surrounded by love I’m sorry 4 whatever happened 2 make u so bitter.
She added to a different follower: ”I won’t tolerate someone telling me 2 die.’
She then wrote: ‘I think Twitter needs to take some responsibility and make it a safe environment.’
This is such a delicate and emotive subject isn’t it. On the one hand as a celebrity in this current age this is one of the things that will happen and on the other we really need to protect people from these vicious attacks. If we behaved like this in person we would be arrested so what makes this different.
How do we balance safety with freedom and I am not sure there is a clear answer.
What do you think?
