Six Premier League sides are in discussions with an American tech firm in a deal they hope will enable clubs and players to eliminate their exposure to abuse on social media platforms.Clubs and players are exasperated by the inability of social media companies to police abuse on their platforms to an acceptable standard and one of the biggest frustrations is the perceived lack of speed the companies demonstrate in removing abuse.
