After a dark week for women on social media, many are asking: What do you do if you become the target of online abuse?
Laura Bates, founder of the Everyday Sexism Project, offers some practical advice.
She recommends keeping your address and phone number off the Internet, as well as reporting any abuse to the social platform.
As for Twitter, an in-tweet report button is available on Apple devices and will be available for Android and Twitter.com next month.
"And if somebody threatens you with rape online, death threats," says Bates, "you can and should go to police."
Threatening to rape or kill someone is a crime. Even on social media.
