Then again, the study was conducted by a British firm that mostly looked at British celebs, and which admits that “male public figures get considerably less Twitter abuse than their female counterparts.”
Bottom line, though, the study says that “2.5 percent of the tweets sent to the men but fewer than 1 percent of those sent to women were classified as abusive.”
And, not surprisingly, it noted that “male politicians fared especially badly, receiving more than six times as much abuse as female politicians.”
