It’s a sad state of affairs when it has become routine to see hoaxes and fake news doing the rounds during big breaking news stories. And the latest shooting in Las Vegas is no exception.
One particular type of trolling that has recently rose to prominence is where a Twitter user intentionally posts a picture of someone during a crisis, erroneously claiming it’s a missing relative or friend. All in the name of getting extra followers or retweets.
