The impact of ‘super-participants’ on everyday political talk
This article analyses the impact of “super-participants” – people who create lots of content, set the agenda, or moderate debates – on everyday online political talk in a non-political online discussion forum – or “third space”. The article finds that there was extensive evidence of super-participation in the forum, and that they did impact the nature of political talk.
Keywords: political talk, online deliberation, political communication, online community, third space, super-participants
