Political Conflict News on Twitter:An Agenda-Setting Perspective

Auther : Fatima Al Salem

Objectives:  The main purpose of this article is to determine whether there is a common intermedia agenda-setting among Kuwaiti Twitter news accounts during a series of political developments. Using Kuwait as a case study, this article compared the topics that were covered by two media platforms on Twitter, namely Almajles news (@almajles) and Khabar Ajel news (@breakingkw). In addition, the study investigated how these accounts reflected on the public agenda-setting by examining the users' comments as a measurement of the public agenda. Method: A total of 604 news stories were analyzed using a content analysis methodology. Results: The study found that Twitter news accounts were highly consistent regarding issue salience, thus suggesting a high intermedia agenda-setting effect (inter-account agenda setting in this case as reference to Twitter news providers). Moreover, the analysis showed that the agenda-setting effect is present to a high degree between Twitter news providers and the public agendas that were measured by the number of comments.
