Harassment: Anti-semitic harassment on Twitter

Platform: twitter
Motives: other
Tactics: verbal harassment, hate speech
Submitter: Kate Bigam

Description:

After sharing a story/video about a Muslim man being kicked off an airplane for speaking Arabic, I have been bombarded with anti-Semitic tweets from the alt-right. They dug up my past tweets about being Jewish, my writing, my author bios, my job description (I work for a Jewish org), & anything else they could find. They have been tweeting at me to call me a toaster, to tell me I am not white, to say they'd send me to a gas chamber if they could, etc., including violent, anti-Semitic, pro-genocide memes. It's been happening for a day now, even after I deleted my initial tweet, the one that started it all. They just started calling me a coward & a faker, telling me I am worthless & deserve to be sent to a concentration camp.
