Comedian Leslie Jones recently left Twitter after calling attention to the near constant abuse she encountered while using the site. She is not alone, as the company has come under fire recently for the steady amount of abuse many users experience.
Twitter released a statement with new regulations to stop behavior on the site that they never imagined they’d have to address directly.
