Constructing Political Spaces via Twitter

    Twitter is a microblogging site that allows users to post messages, called tweets, which are restricted to 140 characters or fewer. Twitter creatively uses punctuation in order to either retweet posts from other users or mention other users in tweets. There are multiple ways in which twitter can be used, either for private or professional purposes. Especially politicians make use of the social media tool in order to promote their interests and mobilize supporters.
