Abstract

Social networks provide new mechanisms for participating in politics and it has been argued that they favor debate, citizen empowerment, and propel democratic changes. This is crucial at a time when forms of political organization, such as parties or unions, have lost their effectiveness. Beyond the debate about the capacity of social networks to incite change and its influence on the outcome of electoral contests, these platforms have become fundamental in the mediatization of politics by turning users into key players in setting the agenda and building the story around politics. This article analyzes a collection of 2,385,396 tweets from the participatory process in Catalonia on November 9, 2014.
