If you can’t cope with trolls, don’t look under the bridge

COMMENT: The return of good weather shouldn’t bring dread

Have your say

Why are celebrities so surprised that some ordinary people of low intellect are bitter, jealous and sometimes, downright nasty?

There’s been a plethora of famous folk closing their Twitter accounts in recent weeks because they’ve been stunned by people who’ve called them nasty names.

Give a moron access to someone in the public eye and they’ll abuse them. It’s always been the case – it’s just it has never been so easy.

Blue Peter presenter Helen Skelton is the latest to leave Twitter. In a message to her followers she revealed she couldn’t cope with unkind messages.

Fair play to her for closing her account – and not just bleating on about internet trolls and the injustice of it all.
