Twitter has finally blocked the King of Trolls

Twitter has a troll problem.

Whimsical though it might sound, the level of abuse, racism and general hate that flutters around the social networking site is less Shrek, more Nightmare On Elm Street.

Take the recent events that have seen Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones quit the Twittersphere: following the launch of the film, Jones was faced with a barrage of abusive Tweets, culminating in someone creating a fake account that appeared to mirror Jones' own (though lacking the blue 'Verified' tick) which proceeded to cause further issues for the actress. 

It was at this point that the 'King of Trolls', the self-proclaimed "supervillain of the internet" Milo Yiannopoulos became involved in events - which would eventually result in him being blocked from Twitter.
