In the final chapter of cyberstalker Chuck C. Johnson’s ignominious downfall on Twitter, his last remaining account, @GotNewsDotCom, which he used for auto-posting links to his awful website, is now…
This brings the grand total of Chuck Johnson suspensions to seven.
Chuck really messed with the wrong guy when he posted that tweet about “taking out” @DeRay McKesson. It’s a little disturbing, though, that it takes a comment like that to a celebrity to get someone like Chuck banned for good.
When Chuck Johnson stalked me in real life, hunted down the address of a former apartment where I lived years ago (he thought it was current), went there, took pictures of himself standing in front of the building and posted them on Twitter, I filed a report of harassment and revealing private information. I thought this was such an obvious case of cyberstalking that Twitter would have to take action.
But this is what I received from Twitter:
And even with Twitter’s much-vaunted new policies against harassment, Chuck has been blatantly violating the terms of service over and over for months, harassing and stalking women, rape victims and minorities, and posting horribly racist comments by the hundreds.
It’s good that Twitter takes action when someone like @DeRay is involved; but you’ll know they’re really getting serious when they take the same action to protect women with 133 followers as they do for celebrities with hundreds of thousands.
