Issue Salience on Twitter During Swedish Party Leaders’ Debates

same issues in debates on Twitter. The political issues addressed in the debates were identified in messages on Twitter over the same time period and these data provided the empirical basis for our comparison of political agendas. We addressed the following research questions: (1) How did the discussions of political issues on Twitter deviate from the televised debate in terms of temporal dynamics and amount of attention?

Emerging Forms of Hyperlocal Media
The case of Finland

Introduction Local and regional media play an important role in media ecosystems ( Napoli et al., 2015 ; Nielsen, 2015 ). In the Global North, local and regional newspapers can be characterised as key or keystone media. According to the World Press Trends 2017 report, three Nordic countries, Norway, Finland and Sweden, are still ranked among the highest in terms of newspaper circulation per 1,000 inhabitants. Norway and Finland stand out regarding the broad range of different local newspapers. The diversity in local and regional newspapers has been

The development of the hyperlocal niche refers to not only content, but also a bespoke offering in terms of what works for income

A greater diversity of shots was chosen to visualise victims and survivors, but these cannot be identified without reading the accompanying captions. If the selected conceptual images focused on visualising irreversible states of affairs or identities, the narrative images were characterised by dynamic representations through the presence of various types of vectors in each image. Narrative images . In 2004, one of the selected

Besides Conviviality
Paradoxes in being ‘at ease’ with diversity in a Copenhagen district

increasing focus on ‘mixing’ and social cohesion in policies and interventions implemented on urban, municipal and neighbourhood levels ( Fortier 2010 ; Grünenberg & Freiesleben 2016 ). These policy foci can be related to research investigating how ‘countless residents successfully live with difference on a daily basis in cities marked by cultural diversity’ through everyday encounters and practices ( Fincher et al. 2014 , p.2; Watson & Saha 2012 ). Thus an emphasis on conviviality, or mundane, everyday (or even ‘successful’) rubbing together and getting along, reflects
