702 presenter Azania Mosaka says while Twitter can be a force for social good, it can also be a force for great destruction.
Mosaka was speaking in the open line about social media users who often taunt individuals on platforms like Twitter, and the dangers surrounding this.
The comment comes after her daughter was cyber-bullied at the weekend when she posted a series of tweets about her experience at a party.
Mosaka says over 30 000 tweets, including manufactured posts were sent to her and her daughter.
