Susan Keogh posts open letter to Twitter troll
Late last week, Today FM newsreader Susan Keogh was trolled on Twitter by a man who questioned her abilities to have a job and a young child at the same time.
While tweeting about missing her daughter when in work, an online abuser suggested that maybe she should give up her job if she's a mother.
In response, Keogh posted an intelligent, emotionally insightful response on Twitter:
I was trolled earlier this week by a guy who thinks I shouldn't have a baby AND a job.— Susan Keogh (@suskeogh) January 29, 2016

Subsequently there was a massive outpouring of support online, which prompted a follow up tweet of both mother and daughter reacting to the overwhelming positivity:
Faith's face when I told her how sound you all are. Thank you for the support. It means an awful lot to me ❤️ pic.twitter.com/08AwPuKxGj— Susan Keogh (@suskeogh) January 30, 2016
