I Hope Twitter Goes Away(alexgaynor.net)

    I think the point is that twitter makes it easy for morons to harass people.

    So I can completely understand the desire to see a service disappear if one believes it is the cause of much pain to vulnerable people, which twitter objectively is, whether you like it or not.

      And those other ones that I named also do that through various methods. If Alex legitimately thinks Twitter is the primary or only method of trolling, harassing, and assaulting users, then I think Alex should take a walk around the block and rethink that. Twitter needs a lot of work on its abuse policies, but the past few weeks (and beyond) have shown us that those are kind of small fish in the bigger pond of harassment.
