Report: Millions of Tweets Spread Anti-Semitic Messages (Snopes)

Snopes: Report: Millions of Tweets Spread Anti-Semitic Messages. “Millions of anti-Semitic messages on Twitter have spread negative stereotypes and conspiracy theories about Jews across the social media platform, according to a report Monday by the Anti-Defamation League…. In the new report, the group estimated that about 3 million Twitter users posted or re-posted at least 4.2 million anti-Semitic tweets in English over a 12-month period ending Jan. 28. The finding is based on a reviewed sample of 55,000 tweets and had a 3 percent margin of error, the report said.” This is an Associated Press story published on Snopes, not something Snopes is debunking.
