Abstract

The chapter analyses the mutual hybridization between Twitter and television during European Elections 2014, paying attention to the ways in which the traditional role of gatekeeping played by television has been reframed by the networked connectivity made available by Twitter. A multi-method approach, consisting of content analysis (qualitative and lexical) and network analysis, has been applied to tweets published by political candidates and referred to television debates, and to tweets produced during the broadcasting of a popular Italian talk-show that hosted one of the main political actors of EP 2014.
