For my Master thesis I have taken a rather social & political conscious approach which resolved in a 600 page volume Twitter Compendium that attempts to contextualize the flurry of one-liner political debate about the new digital future. I investigated the hierarchies, mechanisms and power distribution of the world wide web. Twitter became my main research tool and formed the base for my final publication. Therefore, Hashtags were crucial for this investigation. Through looking at current ,net activism‘, collecting, editing and contextualizing tweets and it’s linked materials, I compacted and archived the voices of people and organizations concerned with this political matter.
As a statement for the ‚open source movement‘, the entire publication was set with free fonts. The book is a prototype of a monthly print on demand produced edition that contextualizes and records tweets that broach the issue of the political, economical and social dimension of the internet.
