DescriptionThis book explores the use of Twitter as a communication platform by marginalized groups. It shows how groups such as Afro-Americans, women and transgender people, who were long excluded from elite media spaces, use Twitter hashtags to advocate, mobilize, and communicate. The authors describe how hashtags including #MeToo and #SurvivorPrivilege challenged the conventional understanding of gendered violence. They examine the voices and stories of black feminism enabled by #FastTailedGirls and #SayHerName and explore the use of #GirlsLikeUs, a network of transgender women. The authors also investigate the digital signatures of the “new civil rights movement”, that set the stage for #BlackLivesMatter.
