Cyberbullying

Cyberbullying is a common type of bullying that occurs online between individuals of all ages. It can include the act of bullying someone through comments, posts, or even pictures and videos. To stop cyberbullying, we must report any person who violates the policies listed on a given site. For example, Twitter states that you should save any evidence of cyberbullying and report it immediately. The site also gives the option to unfollow and block other users.
