Irish Journalist confronts Twitter over Paedophilia accounts

politics

 
Gemma O'Doherty , Journalist and founder of Anti Corruption Ireland arrived at Twitter HQ in Dublin last night demanding to speak with Sinead McSweeney , the CEO of Twitter Ireland about paedophilia on twitter as well as personal abuse directed toward her by the platform . 
 
Speaking inside of Twitter HQ , Ms O'Doherty told citizen Journalist Grand Torino that she had two demands : 
 
One , that Twitter Sinead McSweeney former head of garda communications and head of communications for the PSNI desist from threatening violence against me and all other journalists exposing corruption at the highest levels of this state
 
Second demand is that all paedophile accounts be removed from twitter who are using our country and our capital city as a base to throw out their filth and the number of child sexual abuse accounts that are on twitter is truly frightening . I will not be leaving here until such time as sinead McSweeney removes all of this filth but in particular removes the death threats against me and the threats of violence against me

At  approx 11pm last night Ms O'Doherty called the protest off but said she would be returning again at a later date
  
As Ms O'Doherty left the building she was greeted with rousing cheers from supporters who had gathered outside in support of her campaign .
