I was trying to defend myself from evil cyber bullies. ... Mark Zuckerberg is innocent compared to Jack Dorsey of Twitter, who should be the one held accountable for tweaking the US elections! It’s Jack who needs to be called out in a congressional public hearing for abuse of power, not Zuck! Read about my experience on Twitter: Please refer to: Twitter search: “Aralia Fresia”**I’m a musician*songwriter*composer*poet and from the very first day I joined Twitter, I was called a ‘troll’ by a complete stranger, whom I do not know nor knows me. Then, that tweet, which instructs others to block me if I comment on their tweet, attracts other malific types with no mind of their own, nor opinion except to join in on the attack of a vulnerable dreamer*artist like me. On August **-**th, of ****, I was stalked by a hate mob of trolls who started relentlessly insulting me and my YouTube performances, some of which I am proud of. When I reported this abuse to Twitter support, nothing was done to punish them. In fact, they gave the real trolls more tools to stalk me while at the same time, drown out my responses in defense to their malicious reproduction (screenshots of my tweets, profile pic, and anything & everything I say, but taken out of context & captioned by slanderous manipulation of my conversations). Others responded to them, referring to me as a ‘Silly Cow’ or ‘*****’ or ‘Amish Loony’ or my music performances as ‘awful’. I’ve had the account since November of ****, and it has *** followers, many of whom really appreciate me, but I’m not sure I really want it anymore, considering all the babysitting I have to do there, of political bullies and conformist cowards. Ironically, the true cowards of life never can show their face, and yet they’re the ones mocking those who are courageous (and worthy) enough to show theirs. Please tell me why **,they haven’t protected me from abuse on their site, and **, how they used my data to allow abusers to attack and violate my privacy, my namesake and dignity? The new Twitter abuse filtering system designed by Jack Dorsey was used by cyber-trolls to silence my voice but not only that, to defame ME, and give bullies more freedom! Help. This is cruelty, because in real life, it’s legal to protect yourself by self-defense, and I was not wrong to threaten these ANONYMOUS bullies with threats for attacking MY self-esteem, and MY reputation!! I am a hard-working musician and I don’t deserve this! Some of the attackers are: @AvenDoram @StuntsCupid @IrishWolfie** and @ColgateSnake plus others. Please refer to the search link for: Aralia Fresia (it’s at the top of this letter).* -Sincerely, *Lara Daskivich, *(also known as @AraliaFresia)
The was especially frustrating because Jack Dorsey as of August **th, **** has enabled abuse filtering tools to the bullies, instead of the victims of bullies. This is why I had to take matters into my own hands, and defend myself anyway!
They could make this right by punishing the APPROPRIATE accounts, and not the VICTIM’s accounts, and by deleting the libelous and offending tweets and screenshots about me!
I’ve been on Twitter since November ****, followed by *** people until August **th, ****, whereupon I found these changes to the API very unethical and obviously misogynistic.
I’ve filed a legal complaint to ic*.gov about Jack Dorsey’s abuse of power, his sexist biases and lack of objectivity in his approach to abuse regarding equality and diversity.
