What People are Saying About This
“Within the growing literature on communication technologies and politics, this book stands out as an extraordinarily lucid analysis of the impact of social media on political accountability, intra-party competition, and policy-making. The use of cutting-edge text analysis methods illuminates the potential of “sentiment democracy”, opening exciting new paths for future research.” (Dr. Pablo Barberá, University of Southern California, USA
“This is the book to read if you want to go beyond the hype and the gloom about social media’s contribution to contemporary democracies. Andrea Ceron asks theoretically important and original questions, and answers them with an impressive assemblage of original and compelling studies conducted with cutting-edge methods.” (Dr. Cristian Vaccari, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK)
