Boynton: Constructing the story of COP15 in 140 characters or less

Paper presenter: 
Boynton, B., University of Iowa

COP15 met in December 2009. That was the first time Twitter use had been sufficiently widespread to be an important medium of communication for the UN COP meetings. And people attending the meeting took full advantage of Twitter. I captured 182,000 messages that were written by attendees. They were captured in streams. The paper analyzes the use of Twitter at the meeting and the streams that were captured.
