Journalist's Resource selects Farida Vis paper as a 2013 key work

Farida Vis' paper “Farida Vis (2013) Twitter as a reporting tool for breaking news, Digital Journalism, 1:1, 27-47, DOI:10.1080/21670811.2012.741316.” has been identified as a key academic paper for 2013 digital media scholarship by the Journalist's Resource project, which is based at Harvard's Shorenstein Center.

Over the course of the year the project reviewed around 800 papers from around 30 journals and selected 12 final highlights including Farida’s.

Farida’s paper has now had nearly 3500 views and is the second most read article in the journal so far. It was written as a follow on to The Guardian's 'Reading the Riots' project.
