ARGH!

Postby EvilGrins » Fri Nov 14, 2014 10:02 pm

I usually try to keep this sorta thing away from folks not in the know, but as I'm already getting evil thoughts on this... trying to forestall that.

2011 I picked up a cyberbully who's was harassing a dozen or so friends of mine on Twitter. Learned later he's been harassing a tonnage of people since as far back as 2009, and he's gone after both individuals and their friends, as well as entire groups of others. He uses a combination of rape tweets, pedophilia, and assorted other sick stuff to bother people.

In my case, after he learned who I was, he focused most of his attacks my way making suggestions about my, at the time 3 year old niece.

Twitter doesn't allow for IP-tracking, so finding out who he is (if he's even a he) is damned near impossible. I report him, he gets suspended, he makes another account. I block him, he makes more accounts to get around the block.

Open to suggestions.

Samples of this guy's most recent stuff:

The accounts listed above no longer exist, either deleted, renamed, or suspended.

Stay off twitter for a week or two. These kinds of people get bored quickly and move on.

You did catch the part this guy's been harassing folks since 2009, right? Even without me to bug, he bugs someone else... then comes back to me. He's left me alone before for a few weeks, once a blessed few months, but he always comes back.

Yeah. Just quit twitter. I don't even use it myself and doubt I'm missing anything important that twitter has to offer me.

I am one of the wise few that uses twitter, rather than get used by it.
Like it or not, I have to use it as I manage accounts for companies and groups.

My "opinions" rarely go on twitter or facebook.
I only follow musicians, comedians, actors, projects, companies and groups I am interested in.
This way my feed or timeline is always funny and informative, and does not contain endless photos of cats, babies, guilt-campaigns or knee-jerk click-bait.
There are many things I like but do not "like" so I don't get spammed, and in reverse, many things I proactively "like" so I get notifications.

For some people twitter can simply be an alternative to RSS feed status updates.
eg. I follow all the top AV and security twitter accounts, so I see little security popups in Trillian.
You can have more than 1 account and so use work, family and gaming twitter accounts. Only following certain things with each.

With Trillian I am also logged into more than 1 twitter account at a time, so starting with a plan and "overhead view" of what you are trying to do helps.
Many just open an account and "see how it goes".
I hated twitter and fb before getting accounts, but now I am ambivalent. It is simply a time consumer with benefits.

If you reply to his tweet it should appear in his feed and I'd guess he would be the first to view it. Especially if you do this a few times, I'd say you'd narrow it down little by little by checking for the same ISP each time, there's no way people not in the conversation are going to click your same links every time, or first every time.

All you'd need to send the ISP is the details of the tweets like you have above, and then the IP you think might be him and the time that he was using that IP. I'm sure the ISP can work out the rest

I'm surprised twitter don't care. Although they probably get a lot of this. I thought you could go to authorities if any laws were broken and that they would subpoena twitter or whatever.

Hope this helps

billybill: It's not that the Twitter Gods don't care, but they can only do so much. Has to be a MAJOR law-break for legal action.

Carbon & SC]-[LONG_{HoF}: Won't be quitting Twitter, enjoy it too much to let 1 stalker ruin it for me. Benefits outweigh the annoyance.

Dr.Flay: I use it primarily for world news, humor, & earthquake monitoring.
