I created the graphic below earlier this week, in response to yet another hate filled tweet from a bigot being amplified and shared by people on Twitter protesting how outrageous it was.

(No, I’m not going to tell you which bigot.)

The graphic is self-explanatory. Trolls feed on attention. So remember, do not feed the troll. Don’t add fuel to the fire. It is everyone’s responsibility to curb the spread of disinformation and  propaganda, not just journalists.

Feel free to share.

Graphic which illustrates that the audience for trolling hatespeech is your audience when you respond to or engage with it.
