BBC: Can The Internet Genuinely Threaten Governments?

Dr Aleks Krotoski continues her fascinating investigation into the power of the internet with the Enemy of the State, part two of The Virtual Revolution. Starting with the impact that Twitter had during last summer’s political violence in Iran, she asks if the internet can genuinely threaten governments. The answer is yes. Thanks to the internet, the nature of communities and what they can now do has entirely changed. Dr Krotoski charts how the internet is forging a new brand of politics, both in democracies and authoritarian regimes.
