In One Month of Complaints

I was reading an article a friend sent me about a Brazilian intern who tweeted after Dilma won that nordestinos should die (the actual tweet starts with “Nordestisto não é gente…” but I won’t publish the rest) and she was soon reprimanded by others for saying it, including she lost her internship and her father said he didn’t raise her like that.

The NGO Safernet received the complaint and subsequently sent the Military Police a list of over 1,000 Twitter profiles of people saying pejorative things about Northeasterners. Below is a chart listed at the bottom of the article (in PT) I read about the types of complaints Safernet has received as of late. From what I can guess, those listed as found on ‘Orkut’ were from the total number to the left.
