BBC Newsnight’s Paul Mason has written a book called Why It’s Kicking Off Everywhere: The New Global Revolutions in which there’s a little case study about me and my Internet use for social change and general socialising. It also has my overly honest quote ‘I tweet in my dreams’ as a chapter title. You can buy it here.

Kitchen Sink Films and Quark Films have made a wonderful documentary called The Real Social Network about the use of new media and technology in our ‘new generation of protest’. I’m quite a main character in it and awkwardly refer to myself as ‘the Queen of Twitter’. Watch a preview, get more information or find a screening here.
