UK 'too heavy-handed' with Twitter and online trolls
[link to www.bbc.co.uk]

Police and prosecutors in the UK are accused of being "incredibly heavy-handed" when dealing with online trolls and abusive messages.

It follows several cases where young people have been arrested, fined or jailed after posting insulting comments on their Twitter and Facebook accounts.

Campaign groups and experts from Oxford University say the punishments are heavier than in other countries.

But police insist if a law is broken they will take action.

Insulting someone online is worse than murder. Fact.
Sometimes I think we're alone in the universe, sometimes I think we're not. Either thought is really rather staggering.
