LONDON (AP) - Twitter says it's handing down new rules to control abusive language after several high-profile British women reported receiving a flood of nasty, harassing, or threatening messages on the microblogging site.
In a message posted to its website, Twitter says it is introducing a one-click button to report abuse and updating its rules to clarify that "we do not tolerate abusive behavior."
Over the past week Britain's media has been full of stories detailing the angry misogyny and gruesome rape threats directed against female public figures, including journalists, campaigners and lawmakers.
In a message posted to Twitter on Saturday, General Manager Tony Wang said he wanted to "personally apologize to the women who have experienced abuse on Twitter and for what they have gone through."
