Among social platforms, Twitter is the most resistant to conspiracy theories. This is the conclusion of a new European study with lead researcher Yannis Theocharis, professor of digital management at the Technical University of Munich. The study analyzed data from 16 European countries and one from the Middle East – Israel in the period before and during the pandemic of COVID-19. Researchers have examined the role of various social media (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc.), as well as applications such as WhatsApp in terms of the distribution of so-called. conspiracy theories, according to the Greek City Times.

The results show that, in general, conspiracy theories are most common in Eastern and Central Europe, and in Israel the “conspiracy index” is above average. Conversely, in the Scandinavian countries they are least represented, while the Mediterranean countries (France, Italy, Spain) are in the middle. Of the 17 countries surveyed, Romania holds the first place, Poland and Hungary are second and third, respectively, and Greece and Israel share fourth place. Bulgaria is not represented in the study, which was published in the journal New Media and Society.
