What makes an internet troll tick? In a word — disinhibition.

“We’re 20 years into the experiment of the World Wide Web, and we can clearly see how Internet anonymity plays out across social media, chat rooms, and comment sections.

The most successful you are, the more likely it is you’ll be attacked. To help you prepare for this eventuality, I encourage you to watch this video to better understand troll behaviour before you have to deal with it.
