This dashboard defines hate speech as “any tweet that uses phrases which legitimize hostile actions or ascribe negative qualities towards the identity of a vulnerable community.” This dashboard provides visualizations on three important trends of online hate in Indonesia: first, general trends regarding the volume of hate speech by topic by time; second, content trends surrounding the content of online hate speech, including used hashtags, links and video content, and subtopics; and third, the trends of the actor networks that produce and/or interact with hate speech content.
This dashboard sources its data from public tweets on Twitter and limit the focus of its observations towards hate speech that are targeted to three vulnerable minorities in Indonesia: Indonesian Ahmadiyyah, Shi’a Indonesians, and Chinese Indonesians. These actors are selected because in the past these communities have been targeted by some of the worst campaigns of hate speech in the country – each campaign resulting into significant, and normalized, violation of their rights.
