"Twitter bills itself as “without a doubt the best way to share and discover what is happening right now.” However, it is rapidly becoming the best place to cyberbully, post pornography, and engage in the nastiest and most vulgar speech possible, all with impunity.

These attacks may include outright slander, libel and defamation. At times, the attacks contain overt references to sexual or other bodily function activity in the most graphic and vulgar of terms.

Finally, the last method of attack so to create faked retweets of messages from users in which overtly racial (including use of the 'N' word), pornographic, or graphic sexual activity is falsely attributed to the target of the attack."
