Reviews

Constructing Digital Cultures offers a much-needed analysis of Twitter using qualitative, interpretive methods, drawing brilliantly on surveys, interviews, and focus groups with ethnic minority Twitter users as well as studying tweets. Judith E. Rosenbaum sensitively explores the site's agonistic politics of gender and race, as participatory resistance to mainstream media is itself counter-resisted. Rosenbaum neither celebrates nor condemns Twitter, critically addressing a range of issues related to the 2016 US election, corporate marketing narratives, and beyond. #Mustread! -- Matt Hills, University of Huddersfield
