In particular, they’re bullies who operate behind a cover of misrepresentation and plausible deniability. Their standard pattern is to pick a victim they can represent as somehow in the wrong, jab at them until they get a reaction, and then try to escalate it into a big public fight once the victim’s isolated. If it fails, they go back to shitposting and hope it gets lost in the noise
