Hard data on the extent women are abused on Twitter

I’m not shocked by this data at all. I often wonder there are any women left on Twitter given the volume of random abuse the ones I know receive. The platform continues to prove it has zero values that stand up against abuse. It only acts when threatened. This is part of why I am here on Micro.blog and support the measures taken to prevent/manage this type of abuse.

A few quotes: > …female journalists and politicians were abused every 30 seconds on Twitter in 2017. > …black women were 84 percent more likely to be mentioned in abusive tweets than white women > Twitter’s failure to crack down on this problem means it is contributing to the silencing of already marginalized voices.
