TV classics professor receives bomb threat

Sunday 04 August 2013

Television academic Mary Beard revealed today that she received a bomb threat on Twitter amid growing anger over sexist abuse online.

Ms Beard said she alerted the police to a message she received on Saturday from someone who claimed to have planted a bomb on her doorstep.

The terrifying message said: “A bomb has been placed outside your home. It will go off at exactly 10.47pm and destroy everything.”

Campaigners yester­day observed a Twitter silence in protest at the abuse received by women through the site.

Journalists Hadley Freeman, Grace Dent and Catherine Mayer have recently had death threats while Labour MP Stella Creasy and campaigner Caroline Criado-Perez have had rape threats.

Britain’s Twitter chief Tony Wang said: “There is more we can and will be doing to protect our users against abuse.”
