Twitter vows new crackdown on hateful, abusive tweets

MENLO PARK, Calif. (AP) — Twitter vowed to crack down further on hate speech and sexual harassment, days after CEO Jack Dorsey said in a tweet-storm that the company was "still" not doing enough to protect its users.

They would also aim to shield groups subject to hateful imagery, symbols and threats of violence.
