You can now report hateful tweets you find on Twitter.

On Monday, Twitter announced new features including a "report abuse" button.

The social media site added this feature after users complained not enough was done to stop hate speech.

It comes just one week after an issue of gender politics in the United Kingdom got ugly on Twitter and an activist got tweets threatening rape and violence.
