A person that roams the world of Facebook preying on innocent statuses to comment on. In the event of a successful comment, the original status is dead to the world and no one will ever want to comment on it. Mothers and Fathers have most likely perfected this art.
-"hey did you see Tommy make quick work of that status you posted?"
-"Yeah dude, he's a veteran Status Assassin"
