ken benoitUsing over 35m tweets collected in the year before the Brexit referendum, Ken Benoit analyses the debate and campaign through social media to track the framing, the argumentation, and the patterns of communication about the issues and consequences of the vote. LSE academics Sara Hobolt, Jennifer Jackson Preece and Jean-Christophe Plantin contribute to the discussion. You can also watch the slides with audio.

This post represents the views of the speaker and not those of the Brexit blog, nor the LSE.

Kenneth Benoit (@kenbenoit) is Professor of Quantitative Social Research Methods and Head of the Department of Methodology at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
