Twitter Rape Threats in U.K. Lead to Arrest, Online Petition

A 21-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the Twitter abuse aimed at feminist campaigner Caroline Criado Perez, reported BBC News. Perez was flooded with threats of rape and abuse after she successfully campaigned for a woman to feature on U.K. banknotes. A Change.org petition calling for Twitter to introduce a “report abuse button” has received more than 100,000 signatures.
