Zelda Williams, 25, an actress who is one of the comedian's
three children, posted the words "thank you" on Twitter on
Monday and linked it to a quote from actor and playwright Harvey
Fierstein that appeared to take aim at online bullying.
"Never be bullied into silence," the quote said. "Never allow
yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your
life; define yourself."
Zelda Williams announced she was going to quit using Twitter on
Aug. 12, the day after her father's body was discovered at his
San Francisco Bay-area house.
She made the decision after at least two Twitter users sent to
her Twitter account graphic photos that were visually
manipulated to look like pictures of a dead Robin Williams,
according to media reports at the time.

Zelda Williams had also complained of negative online comments from
some other Web users. "Deleting this (Twitter application) from my
devices for a good long time, maybe forever," she wrote on Twitter
on Aug. 12.
A number of Web users posted messages to support for Zelda Williams
after her father's death and after she quit the site.
Robin Williams, who won an Oscar for his role in the 1997 drama
"Good Will Hunting," was one of the world's most well known stand-up
comedians. In one of his most recent roles, he starred in the CBS
show "The Crazy Ones."
