Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The most influential community on Twitter is the “Black Twitterverse”. Using the microblogging tool as a platform, Black Twitterverse continues to influence pop culture and political discussion in power shifting ways. It can turn middling TV shows into hits (think ABC’s Scandal) or force mainstream media to address the not-so-hidden racism of a TV icon ( e.g. Paula Deen). In this panel, we will discuss how the Black community is changing the landscape of popular culture via Twitter.
