If you haven't seen this yet, it's a riot.
Those of us who have been active on Twitter long enough have been "trolled" at least once. Trolling is when some angry, uninformed, knuckle-dragging Neanderthal feels the need to instigate hate and anger on a social network. In a lot of cases they don't follow you or anyone that follows you, they just do a search for a keyword and begin attacking. Other trolls follow people they don't like and tweet comments to them, and I can't even begin to say how stupid that is. Why follow them to see what they say and then be a jerk? This is only acceptable if you're doing this to any Kardashian, Chris Brown, or Farrah Abraham if she's even on Twitter.
Recently a troll from Pittsburgh named Matt Hogue went after NHL enforcer Paul Bissonnette. Bissonnette is a former Pittsburgh Penguin who is now with the Phoenix Coyotes and has made more of a name for himself on Twitter with his quick wit than he has with his on-ice skills. Here are some of the things that Hogue tweeted to Bissonnette (@BizNasty2point0):
- 'dude is old dog dirt on my shoe'
- 'I had that fish in your Moms...'
- 'Did you have roids with your slop tonight?'
- 'Is that nose as big in person? I bet you could fill up a sewer with that nose scum of yours.'
- 'My boy just texted me asking why I'm wasting my time with some janitor like you. Back to the slop bucket for you.'
First off, those insults are terrible. If you're going to be a troll, at least seem intelligent since you're already coming from behind the curve. And second, a littel word to the wise; if you've been the subject of an investigation that led to your arrest you may not want to start throwing stones. Here's what BizNasty2point0 shot back with:
Yes, Hogue was fired from his City of Pittsburgh job and arrested for trying to frame his neighbor for a robbery. And yes, Hogue disappeared from Twitter almost immediately after that bombshell. The reason we're posting this now is because we found a video from that investigation. Congratulations readers, you're about to see a real life troll in action. Remember; this is why friends don't let friends be trolls.
