Yik Yak & Social Media Trends

Visit WYPR.org to listen to the podcast. 

Social media is full of hurtful, racist and sometimes threatening speech. We take a look at the hyper-localized and anonymous culture of social media apps and digital bullying. Our guests: Danielle Citron, a University of Maryland law professor and author of “Hate Crimes in Cyberspace,” and Issie Lapowsky, staff writer and tech trend reporter for Wired.
