The word "abuse" has become so watered down from overuse. Clearly, the title of this article misuses it. Rebecca Adlington wasn't abused. She's the one who chose to participate in Twitter in the first place, thereby subjecting herself to other people's opinions.

What an idiotic, illgical comment by Duh. Joining a social network site does not mean that you should be subjected to vile and unwarranted abuse (and that's exactly what it was, check your dictionary).
