Twitter's reporting system only allows the specific user to report a death threat

This is how insanely broken Twitter's reporting system is. If someone's life is being threatened you can't report it. http://t.co/JFfjBjk43W

Imagine a world where only the victim of a crime could report the crime to authorities, even if it was still in progress. There would be... obvious issues, right? Like that murder would not be a crime. Or that even if a rape or assault was happening in public, it could not be stopped by the police but only investigated after the fact. That's where Twitter is now.

That's irresponsible of Twitter. Twitter's policy protects very bad behavior. They should know better.
