Cyber Bullying Twitter Chat: Uniting Advocates, Resources, & Victims
On October 8, the Digital Citizens Alliance (DCA) hosted an important Twitter chat on cyberbullying, moderated by Sue Scheff, a nationally recognized author and Internet safety advocate. In case you missed it, below are some of the highlights.
The cyberbullying chat was part of Digital Citizens’ new “Digital Families Project,” which seeks to:
- Foster a greater commitment from all Internet users to practice respect online, including respect for others’ content.
- Empower our members to speak out to lawmakers, regulators, and Internet companies about taking more proactive steps to make the Internet a more respectful place.
Participants shared stories and resources, and the online community lent support to those who have been the victimized. Below are some highlights of the discussion.

Our Problem to Solve
Cyberbulling is a problem all of us need to work together to solve—and, like so many other problems online, it stems from a general lack of respect for people, content, and privacy on the Internet. We are committed to making sure the Internet is a safe, open place to express ideas, participate in the free market, access resources, and enjoy legal content.
Working together, we can defeat cyber bullies and the other bad actors who sometimes make the Internet dangerous.
