Twitter's reporting system only allows the specific user to report a death threat
Joyce Park stashed this in Tech biz
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.
