If you’re quite active on the internet, more particularly on social media, you probably know what a troll is.
It’s an internet slang used to refer to a person who posts insulting or inflammatory comments or messages on other people’s posts and profiles – mostly to upset someone or just to get some attention.
One of the definitions of ‘Trolling’ on the Urban Dictionary reads, “Being a prick on the internet because you can. Typically unleashing one or more cynical or sarcastic remarks on an innocent by-stander, because it’s the internet and, hey, you can.”
