Social Media, Politics and Ethnicity in Nigeria
“Social media offers a unique lens into what tens of millions of Nigerians are thinking and feeling about their lives, their futures and their government. Egbunike drinks deeply from the well of social media and draws forth ethnographic narratives that outline the aspirations and fears of contemporary Nigerians, from ethnic tensions, concerns about the vitality of leadership and hopes for a more open society.
#Hashtags offers a glimpse into the world of social media at its liveliest and most energetic, the passions of Nigerians playing out online, 280 characters at a time.” – Ethan Zuckerman, Director, Center for Civic Media, MIT; Associate Professor of the Practice, MIT Media Lab
