Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate how text formats affect a user’s preference for, disorientation with, and comfort level based on his or her adventurous tendency. An experimental study (a post-test only group), evaluating three variations of computer text formats, was conducted in which two hundred one college students participated. A new hybrid hypertext, expanding hypertext, was introduced and investigated in this study. The participants liked the paged hypertext best, the expanding hypertext second, and the scorlling text third. The participants’ adventurousness exhibited an interaction with the text formats on the participants’ disorientation.

2. Titley, Gavan. "They Called a War, and Someone Came: The Communicative Politics of Breivik's Hypertext" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Hilton Metropole Hotel, London, England, <Not Available>. 2020-02-29 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p640922_index.html>

Abstract: In the aftermath of the terrorism in Norway of 22 July 2011, what was dubbed in the media as Anders Behring Breivik's 'manifesto' became the subject of some scrutiny. While the document involves a concerted description of Europe as a continent overwhelmed by Muslims and weakened by the decadence of multiculturalism, it is less a manifesto for action than an ideological hypertext, a compendium of affinities compiled from a multitude of sources.

As those sources found themselves implicated in his violence, they argued that, short of direct incitement or proven causality, the affinity between their ideas and Breivik's were at best a distraction, at worst a project of guilt by association. A series of public dissociations also ensued; motivated, ideological networks disowned the 'lone wolf' terrorist, established bloggers distanced themselves from the 'keyboard warriors', journalists distanced themselves from what the Guardian dubbed the 'wilds of the blogosphere', politicians distanced themselves from the seriousness of their ideas.
This paper will consider this communicative politics as a way into thinking about anti-Muslim racism in European communicative space. While arguing that research in Europe needs to follow North American research in taking the influence of highly organised and well-resourced anti-Muslim blogs and networks seriously, it contends that we cannot account for these ideological formations by placing them, analytically, at the 'extremes'. Rather, we must give a political and communicative account of how, over at least the last ten years, exaggerated and excitable speech about civilizational conflict became a mainstream banality, and understand the dialectical interaction between the 'extremes' and the 'centre'.

3. Albu, Oana. and Etter, Michael. "The Constitutive Power of Twitter: #Hashtag as Hypertext" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association 64th Annual Conference, Seattle Sheraton Hotel, Seattle, Washington, <Not Available>. 2020-02-29 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p715222_index.html>

Abstract: Twitter is an increasingly used new information and communication technology (ICT) in organizational settings. Predominant research, however, tends to adopt functionalist standpoints and investigates new ICTs as platforms of information transmission through which organizations interact with their constituents. Such focus leaves little knowledge concerning the tensions new ICTs bring to organizational life. For a more nuanced understanding of the constitutive role of new ICTs in organizing, this paper unfolds a communication centered perspective and examines the strategic Twitter use in two organizations. The analysis illustrates how specific Twitter interactions, i.e., hashtags, become hypertexts—a type of authoritative texts—which simultaneously constitute an organizational actor or act as a pastiche of it. The study contributes to extant research by illustrating how hypertextuality is the process through which an organization is constituted in the interactions of both organizational and non-organizational members in both physical and virtual sites.
