The boss of Twitter has said the company will crack down on abuse on the social media website.
Jack Dorsey said the company would "take a more aggressive stance" in its rules and how it enforces them in a tweet.
New rules will get tough on unwanted sexual advances, non-consensual nudity, hate symbols, violent groups and tweets that glorify violence, Dorsey tweeted.

The changes are set to start rolling out in the next few weeks, Dorsey said, adding: "More to share next week."
The move follows criticism that the company is not doing enough to stop abuse.
Yesterday, critics boycotted the platform after Twitter temporarily suspended actress Rose McGowan's account after she posted a series of messages related to allegations against film producer Harvey Weinstein.
Twitter said the account was locked because one of McGowan's tweets included a private phone number, which violates its terms of service.
We have been in touch with Ms. McGowan's team. We want to explain that her account was temporarily locked because one of her Tweets included a private phone number, which violates our Terms of Service. 1/3— Twitter Safety (@TwitterSafety) October 12, 2017
Twitter has been lambasted for working too slowly to resolve issues around abuse and violent threats.
