0

Months ago, Twitter was in an uproar over Newsweek columnist Kurt Eichenwald claiming to have had a seizure over an animated gif a troll sent him.

Eichenwald even claimed he had contacted authorities over the incident.

Fast forward to this morning when we saw this from the Dallas News:

The FBI arrested a man accused of sending Dallas reporter Kurt Eichenwald a tweet that triggered an epileptic seizure.

The name of the suspect has not yet been released, but FBI spokeswoman Lauren Hagee confirmed that an arrest in the case was made Friday morning.

Eichenwald tweeted that the man faces federal charges and is also expected to be indicted by the Dallas District Attorney on different charges in next few days.
