If you talked to Taylor Lorenz (@TaylorLorenz) even three years ago, she would have defended the rights of trolls to say whatever to whomever. But that was before the 2016 election. That was when Taylor started seeing a change online - trolls were becoming much more hateful and violent, and they seemed to multiply exponentially. One reason Taylor saw that change? Many of those trolls came after her. Taylor explains why, even though the Internet just seems to be getting worse, she still believes it can be a magical, safe place for everybody.

If you're a sexist internet troll, Celeste Ng might tell your mom

For the last four years, two things have happened to novelist Celeste Ng (@pronounced_ing) while using social media. She's gained more and more followers, and online harassers have repeatedly targeted her. She says the constant harassment feels like being in the middle of a storm with no shelter. The trolls target her son, too. Ng tells BTSW why, despite withstanding years of racist, misogynistic trolling, she still tries to respond to trolls with empathy...even while wishing she could respond with gentle electric shocks and looping in the trolls' moms.

The opposite happens for women, though.
