In this research work we analyzed some traditional media, such as newspa- pers and a digital social media such as Twitter, to verify the hypothesis that the emerging narrative about the Ukraine war can be a contrast between a “good” part, which lives in the contemporary digital world, and a “bad” part, which comes from the Soviet analogue era. The research is structured in two phases: the first is closer to the classical analysis of traditional media discourse (7 national newspapers), while the second uses the social network analysis (SNA) techniques on Twitter. The time span is from February 24, 2022 to June 15, 2022. In general, the contrast between “good web” vs “bad web” emerges much more than that one between obsolete vs digital technologies. The double analysis reveals a different representation of the relationship between war and technology, where traditional media (paper newspapers) presents a more polarized approach and social media (tweets) a more segmented representation.

Abstract

In this research work we analyzed some traditional media, such as newspa- pers and a digital social media such as Twitter, to verify the hypothesis that the emerging narrative about the Ukraine war can be a contrast between a “good” part, which lives in the contemporary digital world, and a “bad” part, which comes from the Soviet analogue era. The research is structured in two phases: the first is closer to the classical analysis of traditional media discourse (7 national newspapers), while the second uses the social network analysis (SNA) techniques on Twitter. The time span is from February 24, 2022 to June 15, 2022. In general, the contrast between “good web” vs “bad web” emerges much more than that one between obsolete vs digital technologies. The double analysis reveals a different representation of the relationship between war and technology, where traditional media (paper newspapers) presents a more polarized approach and social media (tweets) a more segmented representation.
