Shaming Racists

I can so get behind this.

Anti-racism group shames online trolls with billboards IRL

Basically, this group is buying billboards and posting blown-up images of racist tweets on them. And even better:

Using geotags that accompany the posts, the campaign organizers pinpoint the neighborhood in which the authors of the racist messages live. Then, they post billboard-size versions of the messages nearby the homes of the people who posted them.

Perfect. Can we do this with all Twitter bigots? In the U.S.? Thank.
