Will jails be filled with trolls?

Have your say

I’m getting slightly sick of all this talk of Twitter trolls.

I don’t condone sending malicious messages via social media, but does anyone else think that the time of the police who are out arresting the senders of empty threats could be better spent?

Are our jails destined in the future to be full of pale, skinny laptop-happy teens and crazed One Direction fans?

Think of what it will do to the prison movie genre:

Convict #1: What you in for?

Convict #2: Got two years for calling Miranda Hart a dozy cow. You?

Convict #1: I tried to tell Graham Norton I wanted to pat his dog but my phone changed it to ‘eat’. I’m appealing on the grounds of autocorrect.

Hardly Shawshank Redemption, is it?
