Description: This book focuses on public displays of affect as political statements. I ex- amine what affective intensity does for digital politics and networked pub- lics. I do so by focusing on Twitter and employing three case studies: the Arab Spring movements, various iterations of Occupy, and everyday casual political expressions as traced through the archives of trending topics on Twitter. The focus is on Twitter, but given the interconnected nature of these media, findings are extrapolated to other ambient platforms affording social awareness in general, and affect in particular, including YouTube and Face- book. This volume is about the role of affect in politics and the ways in which online media facilitate political formations of affect. I am ultimately inter- ested in what these mediated feelings of connectedness do for politics and publics networked together through the storytelling infrastructures of a digital age
