I'm not really sure how to handle this, but it actually happened and it happened in public, so I'm storifying the tweets. You could call this the opposite of Kotaku's solution and out of respect for their decision, I've decided not to embed the Storify here instead I'm linking to it, but because it happened...

Earlier today, Owen Good of Kotaku published a story about a transgendered journalist who said via her Twitter that she "was 'completely dehumanised' on stage during an Xbox One Event at Eurogamer Expo 2013, by a comedian who made degrading jokes about her gender".

He published this story by embedding her clickable tweets, which arguably made it easier for people to harass her via Twitter, so she asked that the story be taken down. After a Twitter-based public "negotiation" including retweets from both sides, Kotaku EIC Stephen Totilo elected to remove the clickable part of her tweets, which I can't do and still Storify.

This is a link to today's conversation, storyfied. It includes retweets from those involved.


(It should be noted that I'm still trying to figure out the best way to use Storify to archive a conversation. I'm not sure why some retweets show and others do not with the method I used (the easiest), but without taking an inventory, I believe that I got the bulk of their interactions. There are other retweets and replies visible on their respective Twitter accounts)

(2nd Edit: It has now become clear that next time I want to Storify a conversation, I can't use the simplest method to archive the tweets because the record will not be complete. I'm not going to take the time to fill out this Storify because it gets the gist, but next time I will use another method to harvest the quotes)
