If you don't want your Tweets to be seen by all, you have the ability to block an account if you so wish.

In doing so, they will not see your Tweets or be able to send you a DM.

Across four continents, to mark #SaferInternetDay, we will be taking part in presentations, trainings and events with partners – all encouraging people to make safer choices online.

These partnerships are key to the successful promotion of healthy online behaviour.
