This book takes a critical step back from popular discourse and media coverage of Twitter, to present a scholarly engagement with this popular medium. In this timely and comprehensive introduction, the author not only discusses Twitter's role in our political, economic, and social lives, but also draws a historical line between the telegraph and Twitter to reflect on changes in social communication over time. The book examines Twitter as an emergent global communications medium and provides a theoretical framework for students, scholars, and tweeters to reflect critically on the impact of Twitter and the contemporary media environment. The book uses case studies including citizen journalism, health, and national disasters to provide insights and to help decipher some of the ways in which Twitter and social media more broadly may be shaping contemporary life."@en ;
