Video “rant” on social media politics

I’m late in reposting this from the excellent virtual panel at HASTAC, but here’s my video “rant” about the disconnect between social media politics and parliamentary politics.  In the video, I’m all riled up because it’s the morning after the passage of the Digital Economy Act, but I think the wider point holds:  politics isn’t connected with social media advocacy, but neither is social media advocacy a reliable substitute for democratic politics.
