We study the rise of Islamophobia on Twitter during the pandemic. We make public the CoronaIslam dataset with 410,990 tweets from Feb-May’20. 2000 tweets annotated as hateful and non-hateful for a binary Islamophobia-classifier
We find a link in online & offline behaviour with spikes in online tweets occurring around major real-world events. Most hateful tweets were made when news reports linked Tablighi Jamaat congregation to the spread of #COVID19. Graph with temporal spikes πŸ“‰ and table of events πŸ‘‡
