Editorial Reviews

Review

Tweets and the Streets is very timely, not just in terms of addressing the impact of Web 2.0 on social movements and activism, but also in that it addresses and soberly assesses the use of technology from recent protests in North Africa and elsewhere [...] I highly recommend this book. -- Stephen Duncombe, Associate Professor at the Gallatin School and the Department of Media, Culture and Communications of New York University. He is the author of Dream: Re-Imagining Progressive Politics in an Age of Fantasy. Tweets and the Streets offers an incisive and challenging new direction in thinking about the context and possibilities for digital media and activism. Gerbaudo embeds social media very firmly in the material politics of space, of bodies in motion and in the intensive connections that are vital in turning online affinity into wider movements. This book captures the current mood of rebellion with up to the moment case studies, built from the experiences of those who have played such a vital part in the latest waves of insurrection around the world. -- Joss Hands, author of @ is for Activism

This is an important book on the intersection of social movements and technology. Gerbaudo introduces the term "choreography of assembly" to help us understand how leadership and direction is developed through social media in contemporary social activism. Definitely worth the read if you are interested in these topics
