Abstrakt

This paper examines how Danish politicians on Twitter communicate among themselves, and with
politicians from other parties, with the intention to determine if certain parties shows signs of
having echo chambers on the platform. The results were achieved by doing a network analysis of
over 80.000 tweets, and coding 370 tweets through Grounded theory. The tweets were gathered
from 144 official Twitter accounts, and contained at least one mention either of a political party or
of a member. The results of each individual analysis showed contradicting signs of echo chambers,
and lack thereof, which concludes that to determine the existence of echo chambers on Twitter,
multiple analysis of a wide range of parameters has to be made.
