About me

Thesis: 'Do social media create bias in democratic deliberation?'

I’m addressing this overarching idea by examining which political elites we’re more likely to hear on Twitter, and their role in spreading misinformation. I’m also interested in who we’re not hearing online, exploring who is less likely to engage, and their motivations for self-censorship.
