TiG Twitter survey - have you been bullied on the social network?
Twitter has enjoyed a phenomenal rise in popularity across the globe with more than 500 million active users.
While many see it as a vital tool for spreading news, views and pictures, others have had a very different experience of the social media network.
Prosecutions involving Twitter abuse are increasing steadily year on year and a recent survey revealed one in 10 young people aged 16-25 believe they have been bullied online.
Thisisgloucestershire has been contacted by a Gloucestershire parent concerned over Twitter activity involving one of his children - a 15-year-old.
