Abstract:

Guided by the literature in social media and science-activism, this exploratory study examined how scientists from Virginia Tech University’s Flint Water Study utilized Twitter to communicate and mobilize the public in response to the contamination of water with lead in Flint, Michigan. The results of content analysis indicate that Flint Water Study scientists utilized social media mainly to provide scientific information to the public, making public education their main mobilization strategy on Twitter.
