“Research shows that, over 50 percent of adolescents and teens have been bullied online and 10 to 20 percent experience it regularly.
Karina Bujnowicz's insight:

Below information in this article is very interesting and will refer to this in my assessment. 


“Research shows that, over 50 percent of adolescents and teens have been bullied online and 10 to 20 percent experience it regularly. Research also shows that adolescents that post mean/hurtful messages may not understand the potential consequences of their actions because the pre-frontal cortex, the area of brain that controls reasoning and decision-making isn’t developed until age 25,”

The hateful twitter campaign directed at Charlotte Dawson

Who could've believed things would go this far? The online hate campaign against Charlotte Dawson has had a dramatic ending.
Karina Bujnowicz's insight:

In August 2012 - Charlotte Dawson had attempted suicide in response to cyber bullies suggesting that she should "hang herself".

 

Charlotte luckily escaped death and ended up in hospital although the bullying did not stop here.

 

Unfortunately, these cyber bullies could not be prosecuted as these tweets were merely suggestive. Legal active will only be taken if an individual is suggesting to kill themselves. So no legal action was taken against these cyber bullies.
