TIME WARNER CABLE
CEO OF APPDDICTION STUDIO
Timothy Porter is the CEO and Founder of Appddiction Studio, a company specializing in smartphone application development, which recently launched a mobile app to help students and schools stand up to bullies.
The app, entitled StopBullies, allows bullying victims and bystanders to anonymously alert school administrators to bullying activity. In addition to its reporting features, the application also provides helpful information and resources about bullying, such as warning signs and where to find help. The app also tackles cyberbullying; if a student is being harassed online, they can take a screenshot of the messages or photos they have received to send to administrators. With this app, Timothy has devised an innovative method to harness the power of technology to combat the scourge of bullying.
