Twitter remain "deeply committed to improving the health of the conversation" on the social media platform following criticism from Kick It Out after Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham was the victim of online racial abuse.

"We send our support to Tammy and reiterate our call for Twitter and other social media companies to clamp down on this level of abuse.

"Last night we received reports of racist abuse at Tammy Abraham on social media after Chelsea's UEFA Super Cup match," a Kick It Out statement read.



Abraham's penalty was saved by Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian to hand the Super Cup to the Reds on Wednesday night, and the 21-year-old was the subject of abusive posts on Twitter.

"We continue to take action on any account that violates the Twitter Rules," a Twitter spokesperson told PA news agency.

In a statement issued to the PA news agency, Twitter highlighted the recent 'health update' post earlier this year, with significant progress made when it comes to hateful conduct on the service.

Kick It Out maintains more must be done to combat the social media trolls.
