The Media Diversity Institute and its project Get the Trolls Out will take action on the European Day of Victims of Hate Crime, 22 July.

From our @GettheTrollsOut Twitter account, our experts on hate speech will answer your questions. Join the conversation and ask a question by using the hashtag #askGTTO. The answers will be compiled in an article on our website that will be used as a helpful resource.

On Friday, we will also launch the guide “Stopping hate: how to counter hate speech on Twitter?” The guide will be available in 4 languages (English, French, Hungarian, and Greek) and contain useful tips and advice for both civil society organisations and individuals. Follow the debate with hashtag #StoppingHate.
