A recent study has found a connection in 100 US cities between the number of real-life racially motivated hate crimes and the amount of racist messages posted on Twitter.

Researchers at NYU analyzed more than half a billion tweets out of 100 cities across the US — from major metropolises to rural towns — between 2011 and 2016. They found that the amount of tweets containing targeted racism out of many cities correlated with the number of racially motivated hate crimes that were reported in those same areas.
