Abstract: In February 2010, Twitter, a microblogging website, had more than 21 million unique visitors, and continues today to be an increasingly important social media tool for public relations. Most public relations research about Twitter has focused on case studies—few quantitative analyses have been conducted. Therefore, the purpose of this paper was to conduct a content analysis to determine how Mashable’s “40 Best Twitter Brands” were using Twitter, and what makes these the “best” brands. From October 2009 to January 2010, a constructed month of tweets were analyzed to determine an organization’s usage and authenticity/transparency on Twitter. While some organizations only used Twitter to disseminate information or for customer service, other organizations used the microblog to engage with various publics. Results also found organizations who named the individual who tweeted on behalf of the organization engaged in more dialogue with various publics compared to those that did not. The researcher also provided a list of 11 gold standard Twitter accounts, as well as suggestions for future research.

Abstract: Our study applied a uses and gratifications approach to investigate Twitter—an internet medium and micro-blogging platform with both mass and interpersonal communication features for sharing short messages to others. Twitter user motives (gratifications sought) and the perceived fulfillment of these motives (gratifications obtained) were examined. In addition, satisfaction of Twitter use was investigated by comparing the differences between gratifications sought and gratifications obtained. Two factors important to the use of Twitter were identified: social motives and information motives. Analysis found that information motives are positively related to Twitter use. Although counterintuitive to the social aspects of an internet medium like Twitter, social motives were not significantly related to Twitter use. Data suggest that Twitter is used primarily as an information source, rather than as a medium for satisfying social needs.

Abstract: Before the Internet became pervasive, television (and before that, radio) served as the first line for individuals to find out more about breaking news regarding disasters. Many Americans now increasingly turn to the Internet first to get news of disasters. They read news updates at the websites of traditional news media or through web-based aggregators including Google News. Additionally, they read news reports from blogs and other social media. This article explores the specific use of Twitter during the 2010 Pakistan floods to examine whether users tend to tweet/retweet links from traditional versus social media, what countries these users are tweeting from, and whether there is a correlation between location and the linking of traditional versus social media. The study also uses social network analysis to discern who the hubs and authorities of this network of Twitter users are and correlates this to location and traditional versus social media links.

Abstract: In recent years, the Twitter feeds of U.S. Embassies have sparked controversies, angering both American political leaders as well as politicians in the local countries. This study examines how U.S. Embassies use Twitter, specifically analyzing whether embassy Twitter use furthers the mission of the U.S. Department of State as well as whether these Twitter feeds can be viewed as a barometer of tensions in varying regions. By examining the tweet output from eight embassies (four on the State Department official “watch list” and four not on the list), this study demonstrates a lack of consistency among Twitter use by embassies and irregularity with regards to furthering the State Department mission. These irregularities pose a threat to U.S. diplomatic efforts, suggesting that there is a strong need for the State Department to implement procedures to ensure use across all embassies is consistent with U.S. diplomatic goals.

Abstract: With a U.S. president infamous for tweeting, it is becoming exceedingly important for scholars to study and understand how the medium is influencing news reporting. Using quantitative content analysis this paper examines the use of tweets as quotes in web-only news organizations compared to traditional print organizations. Findings show that while print outlets most often use Twitter to quote official sources and for opinion comments, web-only news organizations use the medium differently.
