Abstract:

Recently, Twitter has become a prominent part of social protest movement communication. This study examines Twitter as a new kind of citizen journalism platform emerging at the aggregate in the context of such “crisis” situations. Specifically, we undertake a case study of the use of Twitter in the 2011 Wisconsin labor protests. Our findings suggest that Twitter and the use of mobile phones allow individuals to become conveyors of existing news and new information producers.
