BBC News - Hannah Smith death: Ask.fm 'to help police inquiry'# The above link is just the latest case to make the headlines but there have been plenty more like people moaning they've been targeted on twitter and other social media. While I have no time at all for so-called Trolls and sympathy for their targets I am baffled as to why the situation gets to the point such as the death of the girl in the link. We frequently hear a statement such as "they'd been the subject of on-line bullying for months". So here are my questions, why if you are getting bad tweets from sad trolls why do you keep your account open. Why not shut it down and get and with your life "twitterless". You survived before twitter was invented you'll survive without it. Secondly if you are using a website which you end up being on the wrong end of abuse why keep returning week after week until you reach the point of depression as surely the obvious course of action is to take your business elsewhere before it reaches that stage. I am clueless as to why people persist doing things that are making them unhappy sometimes to the point of tragedy. Anyone out there think they can explain it?
