According to @RapplerDotCom, Yellowtards are "Netizens" and Dutertards are "trolls"


0ne can't help but wonder what the definition of a "Netizen" is. In the Rappler article Netizens slam Sherwin Gatchalian over 'Ulol, Gago' tweets, the following examples are what are considered to be "Netizens' reactions"...


So if it walks like a troll, quacks like a troll, but tweets like a Yellowtard, then it must be a "Netizen". That's the logic Rappler seemingly applies to determining what sort of social media user you are.

Indeed, in another Rappler universe, there are, of course users who are regarded as "trolls". They are the users who are supporters of current Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte and have, according to Ressa, "weaponised" the Internet.

Selective labelling. Rappler and its CEO are such class acts.
