Interactivity in Twitter: Effects of party identity on the evaluation of political candidates and on their vote intentions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The purpose of this work is to analyze the extent that users’ party identication affects the way in which they evaluate a political candidate from interacting with her followers in Twitter. The results of an experimental design showed that high-identified users –in contrast to low-identified ones– assessed their in-group candidate better when her interactivity level was higher.
