I am a Masters student at Massey. My research is around the use of social media in politics. My thesis is looking at use of Twitter as a campaign tool during the 2014 election, and how it fitted into the wider campaign for the political parties. This blog is aimed at documenting and assessing the use of all forms of social media by those involved in politics and how it relates to New Zealand.
Due to the election being over, the rate of blogging has dropped off markedly. But when something that piques my interest happens, I will blog about it.
