X Used to Mark My Spot – DTNS 4571

The first four papers from US 2020 Facebook and Instagram Election Study, setup to see if social media was the root cause of extreme political polarization has been published. We examine what they found out? We discuss Mark Hill’s Wired article focusing on the social media trend of including strangers in our posts without permission. And we talk to Gene X Hwang about the experience of X taking over his X handle.

Starring Tom Merritt, Sarah Lane, Gene X Hwang, Len Peralta, Roger Chang, Joe
