If you actively support WikiLeaks and Julian Assange’s work in Social Media and particular Twitter, it is very likely you will attract the attention of Anti-WikiLeaks Anti-Assange Trolls.
Some will limit themselves in disseminating disinformation among the WikiLeaks/Assange/WLsup hashtags and populate the WikiLeaks Tweet threads.
Some will attempt to spam, bully, discredit and intimidate you.
Setting the record straight in the WL/JA story is important but one has to consider that engaging with trolls might be in fact a complete waste of time.
Furthermore, some of these accounts might be getting paid for their hate campaign, i.e. it not personal for them just business and engaging with them, might actually helping them earn their living. Every one of us will make their own judgement on how to deal with them but here is a handy list that may prove useful as a start, in case you want to block them.
Blocking prevents them from Retweeting you which is a common way to get you engaged in conversation. It also prevents them from appearing on your Interactions Timeline, leaving it free for the people you wish to interact in a meaningful way.
Some of these accounts are non active. If you wish me to update this list with new entrants, let me know.
