The Trolling Stone

(The) Trolling Stone: An old tweet used to discredit and taunt someone by reminding them of their earlier stance on a particular issue. Although the practice dates back to the early days of Twitter, it has come in vogue particularly during the Trump administration with critics of President Trump using some of his old tweets to troll him, prompting the President to make his by now historic statement: “He amongst you who’s without a contradictory stand, let him retweet the first trolling stone.”
