I really don’t think anonymous accounts are the answer. While it might make tracking down racists easier, I am not comfortable with those who use anonymity for good reasons being denied a voice. The activists in undemocratic nations, and this nation as well, using anonymity to avoid state authoritarianism. Those in abusive situations making their voices heard to sympathisers, where their abuser can’t trace them. Those who want to speak freely without risk of being told to hush by their employer. I think this needs to be balanced in and a crackdown on anonymous accounts would only harm those who use it for good reasons.
The focus should be on social media to do more to rid itself of the abusive accounts.
