WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - Twitter has made changes to its site, after complaints that it wasn't doing enough to curb hate speech.
On Monday, they announced new features including a "report abuse" button on individual tweets, which is designed to make it easier to flag threatening tweets.
Some social media users say that they have found that others have less of a problem insulting people online than they do in the real world.
"It's permanent, it's online, so it's going to stay with people. And they are not face-to-face, so they are hiding behind the Internet," Conor Kennedy of West Springfield said.
Kennedy continued to say that people have to think about being careful online, because their behavior there still has consequences.
