The New Yorker: Twitter’s Anti-Semitism Problem

From The New Yorker: Twitter’s Anti-Semitism Problem. “From August, 2015, to July, 2016, the A.D.L. [Anti-Defamation League] found 2.6 million tweets that included anti-Semitic language, with a spike in anti-Semitism this year, as news coverage of the Presidential campaign increased. Researchers looked more closely at attacks on the Twitter accounts of some fifty thousand journalists and found almost twenty thousand anti-Semitic tweets directed at them, with almost seventy per cent of the invective coming from sixteen hundred accounts.”
