From Kurt Eichenwald’s Twitter feed:

The man arrested is identified as John Rayne Rivello, a Twitter troll believed to have used the Twitter id @jew_goldstein.

Our sources tell us that Twitter’s corporate and technical staffs have been highly cooperative in the probe – and that there are likely to be several more arrests.

Newsweek updated their story with this sickening detail:

The Justice Department released additional details Friday afternoon after Rivello appeared in court. A search warrant found that in direct messages to other Twitter users, Rivello wrote, “I hope this sends him into a seizure,” “Spammed this at [victim] let’s see if he dies,” and “I know he has epilepsy.” The search warrant also found screenshots on Rivello’s iCloud account “from with a list of commonly reported epilepsy seizure triggers,” the Justice Department said, and other screenshots related to Eichenwald.
