Julia Gfrörer Loses, Regains Access To Twitter Account After Fending Off Critical Doofuses

imageHeidi MacDonald has a rundown here of cartoonist Julia Gfrörer losing access to her Twitter account, since regained. I'm grateful.

The idea that someone could get into it with a creator and then through a complaint knock that person off of their account until enough people complain she gets it back may seem like a minor story outside-in, but it has to be super-annoying for any creator whose story it becomes and it marks a wider, on-line culture difficulty in processing harassment complaints.

I'm a fan of the cartoonist and a fan of her Twitter, so I'm glad this eventually worked out. May it never happen to anyone in comics ever again.
