Twitter: Use the Mute
So it happened to me last week. I got trolled on Twitter and I lost my temper.
Here’s how it went down. I was promoting my Patreon, like so:

And I received a message that said:
“What about us? We’re your backers too, before you needed backers…“
Now, the smart money is on “ignore,” but instead I fired back. This wasn’t the first time this particular reader was calling me out on something like this. When it wasn’t Patreon, it was a subscription fee. So I saw red.
“What about you? You get a free comic strip every day. For the last fourteen years. Want more? It’s one. dollar. a. month.”
“One of these days,” came the reply, “I’m going to stop poking you with a stick on Twitter.”
He didn’t know it, but that day had already come.
