The abusive messages were sent out from an account posing as the feminist writer and activist Caitlin Roper, before being deleted. But questions remain over how such promoted tweets are able to be sent.

An account called @caitlin_roperr, which was impersonating the feminist activist Caitlin Roper (who tweets as @caitlin_roper), sent the messages on Wednesday. The account was shut down after around an hour.
