These appear to be dangerous times for all internet-trolls out there… Taking the example of Curtis Woodhouse, who managed to track down and threaten an abusive twitter user last week, Denise Welch managed to find out the identity of one of her own cyber-bullies.
Whereas Woodhouse was kind enough to take back his threats, even making an appearance on a television show together with his troll, Welch was relentless and reported the man to his boss. She tweeted, while mentioning the twitter troll in question:
Although she was kind enough not to make the troll’s information public, she did make sure that, most likely, the man lost his job. This led to some criticism of people who thought she had gone too far, but the 'The Loose Women' star didn’t seem to agree. In an interview with The Sun, she said “I can deal with these assholes, but some people can’t. There is nothing being done to stop online bullying.”
Well, apparently now there is! If there’s any of those anonymous twitter trolls reading this (and I actually hope not!), then remember this: you’re not as anonymous as you might think! Insulting people can make you lose your job, even if you use an anonymous twitter account.
So do you support Denise Welch in her efforts against cyber bullying? Or do you think she really took it a step too far? Let us know!
