British Royals Dealing with Attacks on Meghan Markle via Social Media
British Royals Dealing with Attacks on Meghan Markle via Social Media. The British royal family reinforces its presence on social media to better address the many racist comments about Princess Meghan Markle. CNN reports that.
Since Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle announced that they are expecting a child, the number of racist comments that the American gets on social media is no longer counted. To stop this dredging, Kensington Palace is accelerating.
The British royals are going to release more people and resources to remove negative comments about Markle and to block Twitter and Instagram accounts that regularly endure such comments.
They use software to filter out racist words, just like emoji from guns and knives. The royal family even produced a series of guidelines for its social media team last week.
The interest group Hope Not to Hate analysed more than 5,000 tweets between the beginning of January and mid-February with the most common anti-Meghan hashtags, such as #Megxit and #Charlatanduchess.
This shows that a small group of accounts is behind many of the tweets, photos and memes. Twenty accounts were responsible for no less than 70 percent of the trolling.
The fact that such a small group sent so many tweets, according to Hope Not Hate, indicates that these accounts were created solely with the intention of producing negative content about Markle. After CNN asked Twitter and Instagram for a response, some of those accounts were closed.
