The New Information A Twitter Report Revealed About Meghan Markle Is Raising Eyebrows

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have stood up against bullying ever since their relationship started grabbing headlines. The two have repeatedly spoken out about the way Meghan has been targeted by the press and those on social media, with the former "Suits" actor being particularly candid about the abuse she received both before, during, and after becoming a senior member of the royal family.

Speaking on the "Teenage Therapy" podcast to coincide with World Mental Health Day in October 2020, Meghan claimed during a joint interview with Harry that she "was the most trolled person in the entire world" in 2019 as she opened up about how the abuse she received took a toll on her mental state. "I don't care if you're 15 or 25, if people are saying things about you that aren't true, what that does to your mental and emotional health is so damaging," she said.

Meghan's experiences were also touched on when she denied claims from The Times in March 2020 which alleged she'd bullied staff members during her and Harry's time as senior royals. A spokesperson for the Sussexes vehemently denied the allegations, saying in a statement (via BBC News), "The Duchess is saddened by this latest attack on her character, particularly as someone who has been the target of bullying herself and is deeply committed to supporting those who have experienced pain and trauma."

Well, now the two are at the center of an eye-opening new study about bullying on Twitter.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry hate tweets

Much of the abuse hurled at Meghan Markle has come via social media, with Twitter being particularly controversial for how easy it is for people to post nasty messages. Well, now a study has been conducted to find out more about the hate directed at Meghan and Prince Harry.

Bot Sentinel shared a damning report on October 26 which analysed more than 114,000 tweets about the couple — only to find that around 70% of the hateful messages actually came from only 83 accounts. As for how the negative posts gained such traction, the report claimed that "the primary accounts had assistance that allowed their content to be repackaged and shared by accounts with a considerable following."

It also claimed the accounts directing hate towards the two "brazenly coordinating on the platform," while "at least one account was openly recruiting people to join their hate initiative on Twitter."

A Twitter spokesperson spoke about the findings to BuzzFeed News, stating the social media site was "actively investigating the information and accounts referenced in this report" and "will take action on accounts that violate the Twitter Rules."

Harry and Meghan left social media behind in March 2020 — shortly after announcing they were stepping down as senior royals — when they posted their final message on their Sussex Royal Instagram. "We are focusing this new chapter to understand how we can best contribute. While you may not see us here, the work continues," they wrote.
