Social media: Did the pandemic poison online politics?

"People always hunt in a pack on social media" to find something that is a topic of the day and feel as though they have to "rush in and join in and give that person a kicking, that was something I definitely noticed as a trend".

"Covid kind of became the new Brexit," [Ayesha Hazarika] adds, "suddenly you had to fight to the death over masks, and you couldn't take a nuanced position, it had to either be that this was the biggest affront to civil liberties ever, or if you didn't want to wear a mask then you were sort of a murderer".

"Covid became the new Brexit" shows that online politics was poisoned well before the pandemic.
