Don’t think anti-LGBT language is a problem? Think again. GLSEN and the Ad Council re-released its Twitter tracker to demonstrate the kind of presence anti-LGBT language has online, especially among younger tweeters.

The real-time Twitter tracker is embeddable allowing online users to populate their personal digital spaces with the tool to heighten awareness. Help us reach our goal of zero. Check it out, embed the online tool to your own personal blog, Tumblr or website, share it on Facebook or tweet about it

The #ThinkB4YouSpeak Twitter Counter shows in real time the number of tweets containing anti-LGBT language, with a live feed showing actual tweets containing “fag,” “dyke” or “so gay.”
