MPs to grill Twitter execs on abuse

The House of Commons culture committee is keen to summon executives from social network Twitter to talk about the number of threats towards female users of the site. Committee chairman John Whittingdale said “we would wish to explore with internet companies” what steps are being taken to identify those responsible for harassment. Two men have been arrested after Stella Creasy MP and campaigner Caroline Criado-Perez received rape threats via Twitter.
