Zeynep Tufekci, Sociology, on Nieman Journalism Lab

Zeynep Tufekci, assistant professor of sociology, and her blog, technosociology.org were picked up by the the Nieman Journalism Lab, Harvard’s “collaborative attempt to figure out how quality journalism can survive and thrive in the Internet age.” Their current “Week in Review” post on “Changing coverage in a changing world” explores discussions on the impact social media has had on the revolutions in Egypt and Tunisia.

Tufekci is noted for her criticism of Malcolm Gladwell’s assertion that the role of Twitter in social activism is overrated, as part of a broader conversation outlined on dfreelon.org.
