Editor: all that follows is a backed up post. Seems like it could be useful in a lot of settings, as well as when dealing with the terroristic Fox News Nazis.
ok, I wrote up a guide to what to do if you're targeted by the right-wing smear machine. (remember that your relative importance doesn't matter AT ALL; they love crushing the defenseless even more.) https://mobile.twitter.com/chick_in_kiev/status/1116499716911652864
What to do if you find yourself targeted online:
- Lock down your social media accounts for 24-48 hours (the approximate period of a shitstorm)- ALL OF THEM, not just Twitter.
- Check out http://crashoverridenetwork.com for a comprehensive guide to digital safety.
- If you're getting death threads, use a service like http://abine.com/deleteme or privacyduck to wipe info from people-finding websites like whitepages and spokeo.
