ABSTRACT
The confluence of social media with political action is a complex field raising important questions. Is social media a realm for democratic deliberation? Can we ascertain public opinion from social media outlets? How are people using social media for political participation? Can social media boost democracy in authoritarian regimes? Here, the author considers these questions and contemplates the future of social media and politics.
