As part of National Online Security’s #WakeUpWednesday campaign, they have created a free online safety guide for schools to share with parents and carers about Twitter; the free social networking site used by more than 328 million users worldwide.
Twitter brings endless positive opportunities such as information sharing, positive conversation, collaboration and a live global view of the world that we live in. Despite the good the platform brings, Trolls, unfortunately, continue to take advantage of this freedom.
Trolling can be anything from sending malicious communications online, virtual mobbing, cyberstalking, harassment, coercion and control, and disclosing private sexual images without consent. From 2016, the Crown Prosecution Service were able to exercise new laws that could see those who create “derogatory hashtags” or post “humiliating” photoshopped images jailed.
Please feel free to share our guide for parents and carers across your social platforms:
