Yesterday in the UK, a Emmaway20 tweeted about running a cyclist off the road. The story popped in my feeds and Carlton Reid picked it up on his blog. The latest update is the cyclist that was hit came forward and the police have found Emmaway20. She had deleted her tweet and account after it was spotted by advocates. Bike hate and the bike backlash are monitored on Twitter by @cyclehatred and others. That’s one way to put the sentiment in the Twitter firehose to good use.
It appears #EmmaWay’s tweet was NOT a joke. She hit an actual cyclist, from my local club! To be continued… (cc @velocentric)
