Miley Cyrus, better known to her pre-teen fans the world over as Hannah Montana, has fallen victim to one of the oldest online attacks in the books – the Twitter death threat. What did she do about it? She complained to Twitter to better enforce their site.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the star was attacked on Twitter with some Internet trolls telling her to die. She tweeted a few comments in regards to the mean things the Internet trolls said to her:

@MileyCyrusBz I wont tolerate someone telling me 2 die. I think Twitter needs to take some responsibility and make it a safe environment!(image) 2 days ago via Twitter for iPhone ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

I think the most ridiculous aspect of this whole scenario is the user @TheCyrusSlut that the real Miley Cyrus tweeted to. The account is held by a fan of Cyrus who is keeping it so “the haters can’t have it.”

Miley Cyrus apparently didn’t let it get to her that much because she spent the rest of the night partying it up at Elton John’s Oscar party.

Thank you Sir Elton John for such a lovely night! Now to Vanity Fair. I love all the glitz & glam of the oscars & celebrating such talent!(image) 2 days ago via Twitter for iPhone ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

While death threats shouldn’t be taken lightly, I think Twitter has more important things to be dealing with – like the fact that the social media site has become a serial killer in its own right.

In all seriousness though, stuff like this happens on Twitter everyday. While some threats should be taken seriously, the majority of them are harmless threats meant to elicit a reaction. It looks like the trolls got the reaction they wanted.

    What a joke.Twitter has more hoax death trends than any other social network.I got threatened with death.I let it go.Preople who make threats either want a response or want to see you harmed.Either way it is hard to tell.I take Twitter like a grain of sand.
