A judge in Overijssel was reprimanded and had her Twitter account suspended after she responded to EenVandaag naming PVV leader Geert Wilders politician of the year with the word: "Knettergek", which loosely translates to "madness" in English. 

The court in Overijssel called the tweet a "misplaced remark" and announced that the judge in question will no longer be tweeting on her own initiative. Judge Syliva Taalman was active under the Twitter account for years, according to NOS. She used the account to show people what working as a judge is like. 

With the tweet, Taalman was referencing a tweet by Wilders himself after a court in Amsterdam found him and inciting discrimination with statements about "fewer Moroccans". Wilders said on Twitter: "Three PVV hating judges declare that Moroccans a race and convict me and half the Netherlands. Madness."
