It depends. If you like play Minecraft and burn down someones house and steal his stuff, and say it's trolling you are griefing him and that's bullying. If you do like for example ZexyZek does (mess up with people and then returning everything back and giving them som extra diamonds and making it into a hilarious YouTube vidio, I consider that's not bullying.
About trolls on the Internet. Agree with Dave, there are certainly times when it can be. I am very fond of MMO's, and there is an awful lot of trolling that goes on there. For instance, someone enters a chat, spams foolish inane messages over and over, gets kicked from the chat, repeats it later. Usually I find it isn't targeted towards anyone in specific, and is just about having a laugh. Repeated targeting of a certain person can be bullying, though.
There are times when trolling can turn into cyber bullying, but it isn't always. Sometimes it is simply responding humorously, or satirizing someone's posts. In these cases the person trolling is not attacking anyone, just poking fun.
