Attorney-General Michaelia Cash told Neil Breen platforms will need to create a complaints process for people who feel they’ve been defamed online.

“For too long, trolls, bots and bigots, quite frankly, have flourished online behind a digital curtain of anonymity.

“Enough is enough – it’s time to unmask the trolls but also make the social media companies more accountable.”
