Another -this time co-authored- publication just published in “International Journal of Digital Television – Special Issue on Social media and the public sphere”

My heavily worked research on political trolls still waiting to be published- hopefully in April 2018. In the meantime, have a taste of what I am into within this co-authored work with Duygu Karataş. Thanks to her, this article could be ready to be published in International Journal of Digital Television.
