Abstract

Eurosceptic Twitter users outnumbered and out-tweeted pro-Europeans in the EU Referendum campaign, but were more confined into their own echo-chambers than Remainers. Max Hänska and Stefan Bauchowitz analysed 7.5m tweets and found the predominance of Euroscepticism on social media mirrored its dominance in the press.
