      Specifically, the report found that 7.1 per cent of tweets sent to women in the study were “problematic” or “abusive.” If that number seems low, then remember it’s an aggregate: some women get a lot of abuse, others less so. Amounting to 1.1 million tweets across the sample set of 778 women, that translates into a trollish comment every 30 seconds.
      It gets worse for women of color, who were 34 per cent more likely to receive such unwanted messages. And among black women, the situation is worse still: they’re 84 per cent more likely than white women to be mentioned in problematic or abusive tweets. And that holds across the political spectrum, with both liberals and conservatives targeted equally.

      on Twitter, welcome to the club. To attribute it just to women victims is a misnomer

      Never expect different result by following the previous steps

      but THE  fact remains that BLACK WOMEN ARE MORE THAN  84 per cent more likely than white women to be mentioned in problematic or abusive tweets.
