The Weaponization of Social Media

Author Emerson Brooking will deliver a talk on “The Weaponization of Social Media” as part of the Richard T. Robertson School of Media and Culture’s speaker series.

Brooking is the author of “Like War” and is a D.C.-based expert on the relationship between the Internet and conflict. He will talk about how terrorists livestream their attacks, ‘Twitter wars’ produce real‑world casualties, and viral misinformation alters not just the result of battles, but the very fate of nations.
