12 people responsible for 2 thirds of anti-vaxx content on social media

I’m unsure of CCDH’s reputation, but the Daily Mail reports:

  • The Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH) and Anti-Vax Watch alliance analysed anti-vaxx content that had been shared more than 812,000 times
  •  Research found that 65 percent of the content came from just 12 individuals
  • These include Robert F Kennedy Jr, a prolific anti-vaccine campaigner
  • Facebook, Twitter and Instagram have vowed to crackdown on disinformation 
  • Despite this, nine of the 12 individuals still have accounts on all three platforms
  • The research group is calling on the platforms to take account against them
  • In their 40 page report, examples of the 12 people's posts were shared, exhibiting anti-vaxx content, as well as antisemitic racist imagery
