Supporters of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump have twitter-stormed two Jewish women writers with Naziesque death threats and other choice epitaphs.
Twitter has blocked at least one offending account after complaints were filed on behalf of hate message targets Politico reporter Hadas Gold and author Laura Silverman, Carbonated TV reports.
This is not Silverman's first brush with Trump supporters, in July she had her book "Girl out of Water" dissed on Goodreads by alleged white supremacists.
A third woman received a threat in the form of a GIF file of her face inside an oven, and a yellow star, just for tweeting about these threats.
“POLITICO notified Twitter of the threatening and vile tweets, and Twitter acted promptly to suspend the account. There were many more tweets and emails, some even more vile if that is imaginable. A police report is in the process of being filed,” Politico said.
The threatening Twitter message to Gold said: "Don’t mess with our boy Trump, or you will be first in line for the camp." The same account also messaged her signing off as hashtag Trump2016: "Aliyah or line up by the wall, your choice."
