Twitter Boss reported to Gardai over hateful Account targeting Irish Journalist

politics


A Twitter Account entitled "Evil Nazi O'Doherty" which describes former Irish Independent Journalist of 20 years Gemma O'Doherty as "an Evil Woman , a failed journalist , leader of the Irish Nazi Party. " and encourages targeted harassment of Ms O'Doherty has been allowed to continue despite an acceptance by the Company that it breaches its rules on 'Hateful Conduct' .
 
The Account @CrazyGemmaOD1 which has over 800 followers and dates back to 2015 is regularly reported to twitter for Breach of its Rules regarding Abusive Profile Information and Hateful Conduct.
 

     
 
Twitter Investigation
 

Earlier this Month , a Twitter investigation found that the Account broke its rules on "Hateful Conduct" which states .. "You may not use your username, display name, or profile bio to engage in abusive behavior, such as targeted harassment or expressing hate towards a person, group, or protected category "  .  However , that decision appears to have been over-ruled by someone else at Twitter and the Account remains active to date . 
 
  
 
  

  
Twitter Rules on abusive profile information clearly state that accounts that use "abusive slurs or epithets" in their profile username or description are in breach of company policy..
 

You  may not use your username, display name, or profile bio to engage in abusive behavior, such as targeted harassment or expressing hate towards a person, group, or protected category.
 
We will review and take enforcement action against accounts that target an individual, group of people, or a protected category with any of the following behavior in their profile information, i.e., usernames, display names, or profile bios: 
 
Violent threats
Abusive slurs , epithets, racist, or sexist tropes
Abusive content that reduces someone to less than human
Content that incites fear 
 
- Twitter Policy Abusive Profile Information 



Below : One of many Reports to twitter regarding the abusive content of the Page .
  
  
 
Twitter CEO Sinead McSweeney reported to Gardai
 
Ms O'Doherty said she has made numerous complaints to Twitter about the account and has reported the CEO of Twitter Ireland Sinead McSeeney to Gardai .
 
In a public statement posted on Twitter , Ms O'Doherty says ...
 

Dublin Twitter boss @smcs has refused to close this stalker account for months. It has incited violence against me and relentlessly defamed me. As a result, I reported McSweeney to the police and am suing her


The abusive page also takes aim at a number of other people who are known to Ms O'Doherty and in one instance makes a serious allegation against someone who is well known in social media circles .

whoever is behind that account must have a lot of authority in twitter to be able to bypass the rules , probably a high ranking employee , it is extreme libel , the good name of someone is being tarnished with the approval of twitter
#
she should take legal action . this is libel . you cant publish false statements like this against people
#
girl power . gemma is outside Twitter HQ in Dublin now waiting to speak with Sinead McSweeney about the hate and threats being facilitated by twitter

#
this is disgusting . Twitter must act now and remove this abusive page immediately . How can it allow people to spread fear and hate against O'Doherty . She is a reputable journalist with 20 years experience working for the Irish Independent . People should contact twitter today and demand this fake abusive page be removed
#
had a look at that page and its vile , cant understand why twitter will not act to remove . the page clearly breaches the rules alright . there could be employees in twitter involved in this
#
can people also report this twitter account pretending to be theliberal.ie ..
@IeThelibel ...https://twitter.com/IeThelibel, they also have set up a website that looks like theliberal.ie and is spreading hatred of people like O'Doherty . here is the website url -http://thelibel.ie
#
no doubt twitter employees at the highest level i'd imagine . when you report a page , someone inspects it , the fact that they ignore the breach of rules shows deep corruption within twitter
