cyberbully

A person who uses the Internet and social media to harass or intimidate someone. Tweets and texts are a common cyberbullying venue, and email messages with phony from: addresses are a way to reach people without identifying the sender. An "anonymous blog" keeps the writer's identity a secret but allows the blogger to make harmful comments. See Internet troll, fake news, email spoofing and rage.
