Quicklink: Fake Twitter Accounts, Misogynoir and Gullibility #EndFathersDay
By Feministe on June 16, 2014
@thetrudz has compiled a timeline of tweets that lay out what’s been happening with the pseudo-feminist troll hashtag #EndFathersDay and how it rapidly devolved from anti-feminist sockpuppeting to misogynoir sockpuppeting with very little pushback except from the targeted WoC and BW tweeters themselves. Plants That Aren’t Green Tweets about the effort from 4chan (or worse) re: FAKE WoC (esp BW) feminist accounts to infiltrate our spaces & cause/bring harm & deter others from feminism. These plants/trolls are waging a slime campaign that needs more eyeballs recognising it, more voices raised in pushback against it, and more sunlight blazing down on it generally to disinfect it. . . .
