Twitter attack really just bullying

There has been a large, grassroots social media attack on the publisher of a proposed book about the George Zimmerman trial in Florida.

There has been a large, grassroots social media attack on the publisher of a proposed book about the George Zimmerman trial in Florida. The author was to be a juror from that trial known as #B37. The Twitter attack had its desired effect: The intimidated publisher canceled the project.

I wonder if the Twitter attackers are among the politically correct crowd that touts free speech (theirs) and fairness as they define it, while abhorring bullying? The online attack sounds like electronic bullying to me. If they don't like the proposed book, they don't have to read it.

Lastly, who would have a more educated opinion about the trial, a juror from that trial or a twit who may or may not have watched the trial on TV?
