Kathy Sierra on "Why the Trolls will always win", discussing why she left Twitter.
An excerpt from the conclusion:
No idea. But I do think we need more options for online spaces, and I hope one of those spaces allows the kind of public conversations and learning we had on Twitter but where women — or anyone — does not feel an undercurrent of fear watching her follower count increase.... And I also know the worst possible approach would be more aggressive banning, or restricting speech (especially not that), or restricting anonymity. I don’t think Twitter needs to (or even can, at this point) do anything at all. I think we need to do something....
And when you all find a new space, that feels right, I know you will let me know.
