A new report from the Anti-Defamation League found that there were roughly 4.2 million anti-Semitic tweets in 2017 shared by more than 3 million users on the social-media platform.

“This new data shows that even with the steps Twitter has taken to remove hate speech and to deal with those accounts disseminating it, users are still spreading a shocking amount of anti-Semitism, and using Twitter as a megaphone to harass and intimidate Jews,” said ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt in a statement.
