This is uncomfortable viewing. Men – volunteers – read out nasty and harassing tweets targeted at female sports journalist – to those journalists.

It starts off much lighter than it becomes later on. And then the guys get really uncomfortable with what they have to read out.

An interesting way of showing the impact of internet abuse, once the distance between perpetrator and victim is removed.
