Broadcaster Andrew Neil showed just how Twitter trolls should be dealt with suggests Matthew Steeples
On Thursday, the journalist and broadcaster Andrew Neil was attacked on Twitter by a most unpleasant man from Birmingham.
In a tweet shared with his somewhat limited 213 followers and Neil himself, Jack Stonebridge – whose @yoohoosandman handle is rather appropriately labelled “I’m a disgrace” – rudely stated: “@afneil You’re a cunt mate”.
“You’ve never been my mate. And now you’re blocked. Which, for me, means you no longer exist. Twatty”.
As someone who is targeted by similarly deranged oddities – the best I got this week read: “You f***er. You are a witch. You should be drowned in the Thames by Rolf Harris” – I commend Neil for answering in this way. Twitter trolls have no place in polite society and should be treated with the contempt they deserve.
Matthew has serious problems… What happened to his professional media? Now it’s all about his trolls. LOL!
