Imani Gandy: "#TwitterFail: Twitter's Refusal to Handle Online Stalkers, Abusers, and Haters." I'm not even going to excerpt it. Just go read the whole thing.

(Full Disclosure: I am one of the people that Assholster has targeted on Twitter via the multiple accounts he creates every day. This is a pretty typical example of the stuff I get. He goes after Imani for her race; comes after me for being fat. I, too, have reported him to Twitter, only to receive a generic "we're working on it" response, nearly a week after I filed the abuse report.)
