'Girls' star Lena Dunham quits Twitter due to 'verbal abuse' |

Interesting story and I'm conflicted. Is it Lena stopping the abuse by stopping twitter? Or is it Lena running away fromt eh abuse--Obviously you can't "stop" twitter abuse becasueyou ahve no control over may be a case of self respect, or it may be a case of running away and not learning to deal with it..its a tough call. The comments were very interesting here--they seem to be abusive too!

FYI--I don't know what 'girls' is or who Lena is, just caught my eye about the
Twitter Abuse! Interesting read.

Girls' star Lena Dunham quits Twitter due to 'verbal abuse' | Las Vegas Review-Journal: "Dunham explained that she could no longer handle seeing the mean-spirited comments directed at her statements and photos, particularly referencing a recent Instagram of her in a sports bra and her boyfriend, Jack Antonoff's, boxers.

"It wasn't a graphic picture," she said. "I was wearing men's boxers, and it turned into the most rabid, disgusting debate about women's bodies."

Dunham also told Swisher that she'd stopped reading blogs Gawker and Jezebel for the same reason, saying "it's literally, if I read it, it's like going back to a husband who beat me in the face — it just doesn't make any sense.""
