Jack Dorsey co-founder and chief executive officer of Twitter has struggled to deal with rampant abuse on the service

Twitter has promised to do more to combat sexual harassment, hateful symbols and violent groups. The movie mogul was sacked last Sunday by the company he co-founded amid accusations that he sexually harassed or sexually assaulted women. "Today we saw voices silencing themselves and voices speaking out because we're *still* not doing enough.We chose to take a more aggressive stance in our rules and how we enforce them". Between the platform's seemingly cavalier attitude towards the proliferation of bots to serve government propaganda, wide-spread harassment of minorities and women, and validation of neo-nazi mouthpieces through the "verification" process, many users are finding the platform to be an uncomfortable place.In response to all this controversy, Twitter's CEO, Jack Dorsey came out to propose some changes to Twiter's userbase.

"We have been in touch with Ms. McGowan's team", Twitter said in a statement. We'll update if we get them. We made a decision to take a more aggressive stance in our rules and how we enforce them. More to share next week. He, however, said that it's not as high a priority as enforcing rules on trolls and people putting out abusive tweets, it's there on the company's guidelines.

McGowan, a vocal online presence in the wake of the revelations of sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein, subsequently wrote on Instagram that her Twitter handle had been "suspended".

The idea of boycotting Twitter was put forward by Kelly Ellis, a software engineer. It is also being reported that Twitter has earlier also faced criticism for not being able to tackle abuse against women users on its platform.

Dorsey, now in his second stint as chief executive - he was sacked in a management dispute nine years ago, then returned to power in 2015 - insisted Friday that Twitter was striving for the proper balance between free expression and license to abuse.
