Twitter Support - DEFENSIVE TECHNIQUES

► HOW TO BLOCK USERS: http://goo.gl/ot9b3

► HOW TO REPORT AS SPAM: http://goo.gl/o6RNI

► HOW TO PROTECT TWEETS/PROFILE: http://goo.gl/xnbV6

Note:
To get someone to unfollow you - just quickly block them & unblock them again. Easy!
Sometimes preferable to outright blocking as it is less conspicuous.
TEMPORARILY protecting your Twitter account is another excellent option. It blocks out the noise in your mentions.

The TROLL* Phenomenon

Beware of the "Trolls"

Trolls are users whose primary objective is to offend other users. Every social network has them. The more controversial the topic or issue, the more likely it is that a troll will be part of, or be trying to initiate, the conversation. It is up to you whether to engage, ignore or report trolls when you come across them. Just be aware that your anger and outrage are precisely what the trolls are after.

Also be aware that many trolls are savvy social media users themselves and are careful to operate well within their chosen platform's rules regarding offensive/abusive behaviour.

*Note: "Trolling" is a loosely defined term. Some anti-cyberbullying online activists use carefully calibrated trolling techniques as a reverse combat method towards abusive Twitter users.
