Online Harassment Resources

Utilize this free tool to limit online harassment targeting journalists

In response to the surging tide of online harassment targeting journalists, the Thomson Reuters Foundation, in collaboration with Google’s Jigsaw, developed a free tool to limit users’ exposure to abuse. 

TRFilter syncs with a user’s Twitter account to automatically recognize and flag harmful comments. In addition to having the ability to mute, block or save comments at scale, users can also download reports to archive and share as needed.

To start using TRFilter, register and log in through your chosen Twitter account. Learn how the tool works by watching this step-by-step video.
