A large number of clubs, supporters groups, leagues and journalists undertook a three-day boycott of social media that has ended today.
Former Arsenal forward Thierry Henry was among the first football public figures to leave the platforms in protest over the increasing amount of hate and abuse which appears daily.
🗣”You don’t want to go on your own platform and be scared to scroll up or down because you don’t know what’s coming.”
