Abstract

Threats of violence are not welcome on many social media platforms, and good riddance. People cannot engage in online discourse if they are under assault. Protecting against threats defends the freedom of targeted individuals, though it limits the expressive freedom of those making them. When companies take a stand against online threats, their message is clear: The liberty of threatened individuals matters too. Online threats that silence, terrify and coerce individuals do not deserve our solicitude.
