    Dr. Tufekci is a sociologist who specializes in how social media changes social connections. Her blog is http://technosociology.org/

    I love this talk. I first heard of her because on her blog she claimed that social movements eventually develop hierarchies. I wrote against that on my blog:

    At any rate, this is a great academic view of protests using social media.
