Neil Hall/Reuters Exclusive research commissioned by Business Insider has found that ethnic minority politicians receive disproportionate amounts of abuse on Twitter compared to their white colleagues. Data scientists at Evolution AI studied more than 3 million tweets sent to British members of parliament from the beginning of 2017 to March 2018 and flagged tweets containing obscenities, aggression, and rude language. All politicians receive abuse but the data showed ethnic minority MPs receive 15% more than their white counterparts. Shadow home secretary Diane Abbott, one of the most-abused MPs on Twitter, said online toxicity was fuelled by anti-immigrant feeling. Twitter said it works with the government and political parties to provide support for anyone receiving abuse. LONDON — On April 7, British shadow home secretary Diane Abbott posted a link to a newspaper story on Twitter about increased police stop-and-search activity in the UK. "There'll be 300 extra police officers and more searches in London this weekend," she wrote.
