Several layers deep on one of his ridiculous posts i commented that men who claim "TWAW" but then seek out women as surrogates are awful. For whatever reason he replied to me and I got a bunch of hate/abuse for my message. Someone threatened to kill me. And many other nasty, awful messages.

I'm 7 months pregnant, I don't need the negativity right now so I just deleted Twitter. I take abuse like that a lot online, so I'm not sure what it was that got to me today.

Just wanted to share with you ladies. Could use a pick me up.

I have had this happen from a big male account and they just let their useful minions do all the work for them. They know this, and it's disgusting. The reply this big account left was "fuck you". I reported it, but of course Twitter said it wasn't abuse. The big account also told me that I shouldn't worry about men, whoops I mean "trans women" in women's sports as it was obvious it has been years since I played a sport, which then led to a torrent of abuse about no man would have sex with me.

I also deleted my account as people were trying to figure out where I worked and who I was. What was more disgusting is that most of the people harassing me trying to find out who I was were handmaidens. This was all over a simple tweet of "Of course trans women have a physical advantage over women in sports". Nothing derogatory. No F words. No threats.

I am sorry this happened to you. I know how I felt when it happened. Focus on yourself, your family and don't worry about Twitter for a bit. If you need to vent or need encouragement, we are all here. Take good care of yourself. xxx

That is so scary, I'm really sorry you dealt with that. I actually only saw a few of the replies bc when I saw OJ had replied to me I decided to quickly reply once and delete Twitter. I was upset by the few comments I did read and didn't want to read the rest.

For now, I just deleted the app from my phone and haven't actually deleted the account. I've no idea what is happening with the account now, but I don't think I want to find out.

I would urge you to delete the account if there is any way someone could identify you and threaten your job. If not, then just don't look at it. I don't know where in the world you are, but what happened to Amy Eileen Hamm is a cautionary tale.
