Twits by Choice
Okay, we all know I've got a twitter account with the same name as this journal. I barely use @EvilGrins as more than a marker for my other online activities, which when the LJ/Twitter app is working correctly, posts back here so people can see what I like to think is interesting stuff. I rarely directly tweet to it, occasionally to interact with those twits it follows, because not much of any real interest has been happening in my personal life of late.
No big shocker there.
However, I'm extremely active in twitter's RPG community. I've got several sockpuppets there and run a little newspaper called @the_daily_rag, which is fairly popular among the roleplayers and normal folks. I report both real world news that catches my eye but it's mostly a newspaper of the doings and going·ons of the roleplay community. For the most part the latter makes me giggle my ass off...
...but that's not to say there's some bad stuff now and again.
There's this idiot, who from my best sources is a junior-high/highschool girl in another country, who cyberbullies the hell out of everybody. Been aware of her for quite awhile but in recent months she's been focusing her attention my way. Unwanted attention because along with just being an annoying little shit, she's been pressuring to find out who I really am. I gave no ground on this, while there are folks I only know online I've been open to more direct connections with, this twit is nowhere near that kinda desire to me.
Example: This idiot took issue with a guy I know in the twitter RP universe. She setup a fake account, of supposedly a real girl, who also RP'd. She got to know him via their RP sockpuppets until he was open to getting to know the 'real girl'. This went on for a few months until he was well and truly smitten with her. Then, the idiot suicided this 'real girl' she made in order to hurt him.
This is the same psycho I've been having to deal with of late.
Even though she's been devoting her time trying to get under my skin, she still manages to find the time to harass several other people as well...
...but I digress.
She found me out. First @EvilGrins. From the main link there it was simple for her to come here and then scour my links list until she got to my facebook, which is really my only online location that lists my actual name.
This gets to the crux of it. Knowing I know she knows who I am, she's trying to get me to post stuff for her in @the_daily_rag because I have such a wide ranging audience that she hungers for. I'm refusing to grant that because despite she knows who I am, she can't get it through her thick skull that I don't care that she knows.
The mentality is that a lot of folks go to great strides to keep their RL (real life) identities secret. I only did the one stride. So, that it's been discovered by a nutjob with self·esteem issues doesn't overtly disturb me. So much of a nutjob that for all the shit she's pulled, that fake suicide mentioned above being just the tip of the iceberg, she can't wrap her head around why I'm not submitting to her will.
Among my friends on twitter I get @'d maybe a few dozen times a day, any day I tweet. This idiot @'s me as much as the lot of them even on days I don't tweet.
I'm hoping if I ignore her she will eventually tire out and seek greener pastures... or at least easier to annoy ones. Not that I'd wish her on anyone, even somebody I hated.
