You remember Kurt Eichenwald?

Okay, so the name doesn’t ring a bell.

You remember the famous meltdown on Tucker Carlson’s Show followed by Tweet Storm?

Mark wrote about it yesterday: ‘I Think You May Be Coming Undone, Kurt’: MSNBC Contributor’s Bizarre Carlson Show Appearance.

The Blaze reports on the fallout on Twitter, Newsweek’s Kurt Eichenwald filing charges against Twitter user who caused him to have a seizure:

Newsweek senior writer Kurt Eichenwald announced Friday afternoon via Twitter that he is taking a hiatus from the social networking site following a bizarre appearance on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Thursday evening.

After the contentious conversation with Carlson, Eichenwald fired off dozens of since-deleted tweets, most of which were incoherent, in response to the interview. And one alt-right Twitter user, allegedly aware of the Newsweek reporter’s epilepsy, sent him a flashing gif with the words “You deserve a seizure for your posts.”

The troll’s account has since been suspended, but not before it caused Eichenwald to have a seizure, the writer’s wife claimed.

Early Friday afternoon, Eichenwald returned to his Twitter account to announce that he is working with his lawyers and law enforcement to identify and charge the anonymous social media user who attacked him.
