TV personality Charlotte Dawson has confronted the online trolls who tormented her face-to-face.
Dawson was hospitalised in August after being bullied online, often by people who kept their identity secret.
She was filmed confronting those who had tormented her, including 20-year-old Jordan McGuire.
"I'm face to face with you now," she told Mr McGuire, in a clip aired on Seven.
"If I turned around to you and said 'F--- you, you c---', how do you feel?"
Mr McGuire said Twitter was a bit of fun and wasn't "real life".
"I apologise to anyone who's taken offence to my tweets, however, that's not my interpretation," he said.
Other "trolls" told Dawson they gained confidence online and that those in the public eye should expect abuse.
Dawson said she did the story to find closure and to help others who had been abused by strangers online.
"The message is that if you want that freedom of speech and you want to lash out at people, well, you can be easily traced and if someone wants to find you, they can," she told The Sydney Morning Herald.
Support is available for anyone who may be distressed by calling Lifeline on 13 11 14.
