Media Landscape and Political Diversity in Twitter

Friday, April 29, 3:00 pm in MCS 148

Speaker: Jon Crowcroft, Cambridge University

Abstract:

I’m going to describe some work (to appear in ICWSM) which is about a large scale analysis of the

structure of media sources (newspaper, tv, tech) as followed, re-tweeted and mentioned, and the impact

of social networking on that structure.

This is work done by my student Jisun An in colaboration with Mia Cha at KAIST and Krishna Gummadi at MPI.
