A Maryland man has been arrested on federal charges that he intentionally used an animated tweet to trigger an epileptic seizure in a Newsweek reporter who had been critical of President Donald Trump.

The reporter, Kurt Eichenwald, was at his home office in Dallas on December 15 when he clicked on a Twitter message sent him by a man using the pseudonym "@jew_goldstein." A blinding strobe light began flashing on his screen, sending Eichenwald -- who has openly discussed his epilepsy -- into a seizure. His wife found him on the floor.



An affidavit filed with the complaint said that a search of Rivello's Twitter account showed he had sent other messages about Eichenwald saying "I know he has epilepsy" and "I hope this sends him into a seizure."



Since the attack, Eichenwald said, 40 more accounts have sent him strobe lights messages. He has passed their information to the FBI

More, but not the most, that's for sure. The left is crushing the right when it comes to this.

Is that really as bad as intentionally causing an epileptic seizure and getting others to try to do the same?

It was a despicable thing to do.  Hopefully the legal system will take care of it.    However, we don't know that all the people are Trump supporters.  There are just plain despicable people in the world who do that sort of thing for "fun" when they find out something like that causes problems to another person, any other person.

No, its worse. I won't put my disability ahead of the publics right. You'd be talking a different story if the man was black or Muslim.

Epileptic seizures are not that bad anyway. He probably just dazed out for min and drooled on himself. Odd though that it worked that quickly. Did he stare at it for a bit?
