Intentionally trying to induce seizures with social media posts seems to be a new and scary trend.
Thanks to Threatpost for providing more details.
The complaint, filed with the U.S. Attorney and the Office of the State’s Attorney in Maryland, addresses more than 30 seizure-inducing tweets posted on the foundation’s feed in the first week of November. The investigation into these posts is ongoing, an Epilepsy Foundation spokesperson told Threatpost.
The posts deliberately targeted the feed during National Epilepsy Awareness Month (November), when the greatest number of people with epilepsy and seizures were likely to be following their Twitter activities, the Epilepsy Foundation said.
These types of attacks are no different than a person carrying a strobe light into a convention of people with epilepsy and seizures, with full intention of inducing seizures and causing “significant harm” to the participants, said Allison Nichol, Esq., director of legal advocacy for the Epilepsy Foundation, in a statement.
Exposure to bluelight from screens and LED lights can cause a wide variety of health issues to everybody – not just epileptics. Additionally, exposure to all sources of cell phone and WiFi radiation can also affect the brain along with the rest of the body. Research has even determined that it can disrupt the blood-brain barrier, cause it to leak, and kill brain cells. Unfortunately children seem to be more vulnerable to exposure because they are smaller and their skulls are thinner.
