Abstract

The arrival of the internet, especially social media, was thought by many to offer a chance at democratic renewal, as it allows for greater interaction between citizens and their representatives. Benjamin Lee researched the use of social media by candidates at the 2010 general election. In this post he sets out his findings, showing that even with the availability of Web 2.0 as a campaign tool, constituency campaigning in 2010 was little different to previous elections.
