 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

protests.
Our

suggest
that
Twitter

the

allow
 individuals
to
become

and
new

producers.
