East Londonderry MLA targeted by online trolls

An East Londonderry MLA has been targeted by online troll(s) in recent weeks.  

MLA Maurice Bradley says that he has reported the content to the police.   In a social media post, he says that the troll(s) are "lost in the insignificance of their own self-inflated importance."

A troll is a person who posts inflammatory, insincere, digressive, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an 'online community' such as social media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc.), a newsgroup, forum, chat room, online video game, or blog, with the intent of provoking readers into displaying emotional responses, or manipulating others' perception.
