Twitter and Society

Mary Chayko (School of Communication and Information)

This course will explore how the social media platform Twitter and its 500-million-plus users are revolutionizing society, social connectedness, and social interaction itself. Students will examine interdisciplinary research and theory on Twitter and social media use and how community and society have been impacted as a result. Students in the seminar will interact and engage on Twitter with course authors, guest "speaker-tweeters," students from other universities, and one another, expanding the boundaries of the traditional classroom by using Twitter to study Twitter.
