Gender and social media

This weeks articles where about gender equality online. As an online gamer myself and a person who spends a lot of time on the internet I was quite shocked at what I was hearing. I knew of the average internet trolls, but these people went to crazy extents to really violate these people. Although, I found one of the articles quite biased due to not having a word about the counter argument I enjoyed this weeks readings. On twee-q I didnt discover much because I really don’t use social media much other than the casual scroll through facebook. So on twitter I dont have any retweets myself. But overall I see that mainly men are the ones that do most of the retweeting. I think this is a result of men retweeting revealing pictures of women or plain simply there are more men on twitter. Yet again this is probably inacurrate because of my lack of knowledge on twitter.
