    • Protesters use microblogging tools to make their voices heard in new ways
      -Lindsay Ems – Indiana University
    • Three Cases
      Iran 2009
      Moldova 2009
      G-20 Summit Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 2009
    • Method & Theory
      Method
      Qualitative data
      Traditional news media stories
      Commentary from journalists, academic and quasi-academic observers and bloggers
      • Theory
      • Framing – Gitlin 1980
      • Media coverage of events shapes our interpretation of events.
      • Shows protests as “illegitimate sideshows”
    • Twitter: a protest tool
    • 62.63
      Iranian Protests June 13-16, 2009
      62.63 % to 33.75%
    • Moldovan Protests April 5-7, 2009
    • G-20 Protests September 22-25, 2009
    • Elliot Madison – Arrested for tweeting the location of police
    • Twitter use by protesters was seen as a threat by governments in all three cases though it’s actual impact varies in quality and effect.
      Protester-generated content may complicate framing theory as it is applied to traditional news coverage of protests.
      Future research and theorizing is needed.
      Conclusion/Discussion
