Disabled Twitter Users Petition

How many of you use a social networking site? I do. I’m getting very annoyed at the amount of nasty posting towards disabled people especially. Many of the community members of social networks are ok but there’s always a few people that have to spoil it for others.

Disabled social media users are more likely to self harm or want to die because they can not cope with the hurt of words – yes they may just be words but to an Autistic person like me it somehow hurts more because we take every word literally.

This is why I’ve put a petition up to try to get Twitter to listen to the complaints sent to them. They do not seem to understand mental health issues or Autism/Aspergers.

I don’t know if it’ll help but I would really like to see Twitter look at slander and swearing towards disabled people on their site.
