Yes, It’s Been Getting Worse on Twitter. Here’s Why.

I found this via Joe. My. God.STUDY: Twitter Sees 600% Increase In Accounts From Self-Identified White Nationalists And Neo-Nazis. From the article:

“On Twitter, Isis’ preferred social platform, American white nationalist movements have seen their followers grow by more than 600 per cent since 2012,” the study, authored by JM Berger, stated.

So yes, if you’ve noticed things are seemingly getting worse on Twitter, it’s not just you. This is a real thing that is happening. My advice? There’s a block function. Use it if you gotta. With that said, I’m out.

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we are both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat. Life is pretty darned awesome.
