Here we go again. I don't know why they just don't do one big study to determine once and for all that people say and do stuff on the internet because they are anonymous. Another thing, is it "misogyny" if 50% of the people talking trash to women are actually women too?

During that short timeframe, the study found "10,000 explicitly aggressive and misogynistic tweets" directed at 6,500 users in the UK alone, TechCrunch reports. Internationally, there were more than 200,000 tweets using the same terms directed at 80,000 users. The study also claims about 50 percent of those abusive tweets were sent by women.
