Zelda Williams, who quit Twitter after being taunted and trolled following her father Robin Williams’ death, is back on the social media site.

The comedian’s daughter rejoined Twitter on Monday.

She announced her returning by linking her first tweet to her Tumblr account, which had a message quoting actor and playwright Harvey Fierstein, “Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself.”

As Gossip Cop reported, after Williams paid loving tribute to her dad — following his shocking suicide — she was flooded with numerous messages of sympathy and support, but also had to contend with grisly Photoshopped images of her father and trolls mocking her and her family.

She tweeted for the final time on August 13, “I’m sorry. I should’ve risen above. Deleting this from my devices for a good long time, maybe forever. Time will tell. Goodbye.”
