Product description


Winner of the Choice award for Outstanding Academic Title

"The 200,000 million tweets sent each day have been deserving of serious scholarly attention. Murthy addresses this gap in a pioneering book."
The Global Journal

"A tantalizing, insightful and balanced account of the existing scholarship about the question how Twitter changes our communication practices."
Koen van Turnhout Macro Blog

“For those seeking an introductory approach and who are interested in empirical findings on the four main topics addressed by Murthy, the book offers a start in what will surely become a growing area of investigation for those interested in the sociology of social media.”
Information, Communication and Society

"Dhiraj Murthy′s Twitter is an excellent overview of the endless spirals of meaning and insignificance that characterize the micro–blogging phenomenon."
Hal Niedzviecki, author of The Peep Diaries: How We′re Learning to Love Watching Ourselves and Our Neighbours

"Dhiraj Murthy′s Twitter is a rich and informed consideration of one of the most commonly used sites in the US today. Drawing from multiple perspectives and incorporating literature from sociology, communication, political science, and media studies, Murthy’s book includes chapters on the role Twitter plays in reshaping journalism, activism practices, disaster coordination, and the sharing of social support and medical information. Notably, the book pays special attention to historical context, drawing out connections between Twitter and earlier technologies, and using these comparisons to illustrate what is new and what is not so new about this fascinating communication platform. Murthy engages with sophisticated analytical frameworks but does so using accessible language and concrete examples, which will make this volume especially useful in the classroom."
Nicole Ellison, Michigan State University
