A few of Scotland's most important female politicians have supported demands for Twitter to shut down online abuse against women.

Sturgeon, Davidson and Dugdale remarked that they'd been subject to rape and death threats on the social media platform.

They are allegedly supporting Amnesty International with their Campaign, a platform that suggests that Twitter has turned into a toxic place for women.

Though, according to the BBC, Twitter has stated that it does not agree with the conclusions of the human rights group.

Defending the prospect that it "cannot delete hatred and prejudice from society", the company went on to explain that it had put into place over 30 alterations to the platform over the past 16 months to heighten safety, this entailed measures such as heightening cases of action it implements on twitter abuse.
