Georgina Downer has deleted her twitter account saying trolls were targeting it, insulting her and using foul language.
Ms Downer has denied that she’s shutting down debate by stopping people from commenting about her campaign for the Mayo by-election, saying her facebook page is still up but she won’t accept abuse.
Some people on other facebook pages including Adelaide Hills chat claim that they have been blocked or had their comments deleted by Ms Downer or her team, especially those focused on climate change, including professor of International Law Tim Stephens who called the practice odd and undemocratic.
