Twitter had come under increasing pressure to react after a feminist campaigner, several link women members of parliament and female journalists were targeted by users who hurled misogynistic abuse at them and in some cases made violent threats.

"The abuse they've received is simply not acceptable. It's not acceptable in the real world, and it's not acceptable on Twitter," he said. Twitter UK said it was adding staff to help handle abuse reports.
