You got: Thirst Troll
You troll at any given moment with no purpose other than to attract attention while annoying as many people as possible at once. You even go as far as posting half-naked pictures and selfies to boost your fragile ego. While some of your comments can actually be classified as funny, your comedic ability is often quickly overshadowed by your obvious thirst for attention and validity from strangers online. No topic is off limits in your eternal quest to raise your Klout score-too bad you're the only person left who believes that actually means something.
You got: Pseudo-Intellectual Troll
Your main objective is to spellcheck, grammar police and provide unsolicited history lessons in the midst of light-hearted Twitter banter or a heated online discussion. You are the Wikipedia of trolls in that you spout at random facts and statistics without any credible source material. Your feigned intelligence is just another way to mask your own insecurities and tout yourself as an "expert" on all things irrelevant. Translation: We don't believe you, you need more people.
You got: Stan Troll
You act like every celebrity owes his or her lives to you for your part in worshipping them, which in your mind is the sole reason they rose to stardom. Incessantly stalking celebrity timelines, you're quick to chime in on every online mention of your favorite entertainer and even quicker to come to the defense of your imaginary BFF should a Twitter beef pop off. While your unwavering loyalty would be commendable under normal circumstances, your super Stan trolling merely comes off desperate at best and just plain creepy at worst. Getting blocked is a common occurrence for you.
You got: Struggle Troll
It seems every time you post a comment you unintentionally ruffle feathers and your initial post sparks a never-ending thread of replies. Instead of letting the topic die down, you insist on fanning the flames with more controversial commentary. Adding to your struggles is the fact that your super-sexy onscreen user name never seems to match your crusty avatar or worse yet it's an obvious photo of someone who is clearly not you.
You got: Bandwagon Troll
Half of the time you don't even know what you're talking about. You're a schizophrenic troll with an undiagnosed split personality disorder, because you're likely to jump on any trending hashtag to support a cause because it seems like the "cool" thing to do. You're the type to start a #FreeWi-Fi hashtag because you thought Wi-Fi was a political prisoner somewhere in Africa. A smartphone social activist of sorts, you'll repost positive messages despite living a negative life. You talk the talk all day and night but ain't about that life because you're too busy trolling the Web to do anything real.
You got: You Are Not A Troll
Congratulations! You are currently succeeding at living a troll-free life. You use social media not just as a way to express yourself but also to get insight on the viewpoints of others. You could care less about getting into an online debate with someone you don't even know, you would much rather share your thoughts, laugh at others comments and keep it moving back to your offline life. You use the Internet to kill time during your boring 9-to-5 to get a quick laugh and find out up-to-date info without taking yourself or the Twitter community too seriously.
