Abstract
Social media (SM) like Twitter and Facebook seem to be playing an important role in the current wave of social movements around the globe, from the so-called Arab Spring to the Occupy movement in the US. Social media have become also a key source of information for many people, as well as for Mainstream Media (MSM), whose strategies of communication have changed to incorporate this social component. The streams of information flow rapidly from SM to MSM and back again, MSM to SM, re-feeding the loop.

The project focuses its analysis in newspapers’ front pages as an concrete example of the MSM ecology. We will study the relationship between SM -with data from Twitter- and the coverage in newspapers regarding recent social movements: the Arab Spring (Tunisia, Egypt, Syria, Argelia), the 15-M Movement #SpanishRevolution (Spain) and the Occupy movement (USA). The data visualizations try to interpret the spread of news in contemporary society; moreover, they map the dialogic intersections of the ‘hidden and public’ transcripts.
