Brianna Wu offers cash reward for info leading to arrest of harassers

Dev who was forced from her home by threats has put together an $11,000 reward to encourage informants to come forward.
Last month, Revolution 60 developer Brianna Wu was forced to leave her home thanks to death threats on Twitter. Now, the developer has put together a fund to aid in catching those responsible. Today, Wu tweeted that she's raised $11,000 "for identifiable information leading to the prosecution of people sending me death threats."

This latest move comes in addition to Wu's announcement of a legal fund for women "targeted by Gamergate" from libel and defamation. Wu has also been exceedingly outspoken regarding the issue, appearing on the Huffington Post's live show and in other mainstream news outlets. Wu later followed her first tweet with a second that lays out the terms of her reward program: [Disclaimer: #GamerGate proponents recently organized and successfully executed a campaign to have our ad partner Intel pull an ad campaign.]
