The internet is a mean place. There's no question about that. Sometimes, however, when the trolls get too much, people can lash out. Federal Treasurer Joe Hockey is one such lasher.

The Aussie politi-sphere is so full of vitriol from both sides these days that it's tough to know who is in the right.
All Joe Hockey knows is that he wants mean people to leave him alone on Twitter.
Can the angry & extreme left wing trolls who have many more tweets than followers please UNFOLLOW me. You are boring uninformed & repetitive

YEAH! Take that...anonymous Twitter people. He sure showed them.
Seriously though, as a PSA: don't be a douche on the internet. [Joe Hockey]
