I’m Reluctant to Use Twitter Because of Cyberbullies – Juliet Ibrahim

Juliet Ibrahim, the Ghanaian actress also famous in Nollywood, says she is reluctant to use Twitter actively because of cyberbullies.

In a series of tweets on Wednesday, the film star said cyberbullying on Twitter has become a norm and a severe problem affecting one’s mental health.

The actress lamented that the microblogging platform which should be “a safe space” where people battling “numerous personal obstacles” can find solace “is ruined by bullies.”


“I’ve always been very reluctant to actively use Twitter because so many times I will scroll and all I’ll see are attacks, insults, and bullying on my timeline, not only to me but even on the timeline of others,” she wrote.

“I think Twitter will be more exciting to people like myself that flee from cyberbullying when Twitter users learn to distinguish between sharing opinions and engaging in bullying, by promoting a kinder online conversation style.

“People in today’s digital age frequently encounter numerous personal obstacles and struggles. So, when people seek solace or entertainment online, they may intend to share a joke, watch videos, or engage in lighthearted discussion.

“However, for some unfortunate souls, the experience is ruined by the presence of internet bullies. Cyberbullying has become a severe problem affecting mental health and well-being.

“Let’s learn to be kind to one another in our utterances because we do not know what people are dealing with personally.

“Constant exposure to online bullying can be harmful to people and it adds another layer of stress to their already difficult lives.

“They are subjected to cruel insults, harassment, and intimidation instead of finding refuge and entertainment.

“Cyberbullying can have serious implications, causing emotional and psychological discomfort and leading to anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues.

“Everyone deserves the freedom to engage in online activities without being subjected to the harmful impacts of cyberbullying.”

In 2020, Twitter announced a new feature that allows users to either choose people who can comment on their posts or block all replies altogether.

The feature came in the wake of heated pressure on the social media company to clamp down on cyberbullying.
