Rhiannon Lucy Cosslett’s wish for 2014: ‘An end to online hate’
I’d settle for people being nicer to one another on the internet. My general rule is, if you wouldn’t have the guts to walk up to someone in a room and say it, then don’t say it online. From revenge porn to threats of violence against women to slut-shaming to feminists trashing each other, I’d like 2014 to be the year that people close their laptops instead of being nasty – and realise that very little of significance ever happens on Twitter.
