Study Examines ‘Realities’ of Tweets from US Presidential Election Campaign 2016

NUI Galway study explores the realities contained within the tweets of several presidential nominees during the 2016 US Presidential Election Campaign

New research from NUI Galway explores the ‘realities’ contained within the tweets of several American presidential nominees from three of the main political parties in the United States: Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton and Jill Stein in the months leading up to Election Day on 8 November 2016. The research, which has been accepted to be published by the International Conference on Information Systems (2017) in Seoul, South Korea, is one of the first studies to use a magical realism perspective to examine the manner with which several main 2016 US presidential election candidates used Twitter as a tool for strategic storytelling and creating specific narratives for their electorate.
