For random thoughts, check out @lizdubois on Twitter. For longer thoughts take a look at my blog – this is also where you will find links to op-eds, journal articles and presentations. If you are looking for my academic articles, Google Scholar has you covered (or feel free to contact me for a complete list of publications and conference presentations).
Here are some of my favorite pieces:
- Forced to tweet in both official languages, ministers lose their impact (Op-Ed, Globe and Mail, Feb. 2015)
- Swivel chairs, the Olsen twins and chatting with strangers (My First Internet on Medium, Feb. 2015)
- How Harper uses Twitter differently from Trudeau and Mulcair (Globe and Mail, Jan. 2015)
- Despite dark overtones, big data a bonus to us all (Op-Ed, Chronicle Herald, July 2013)
- Liberals’ supporters might not be voters (Op-Ed, Ottawa Citizen, March 2013)
