Project Description

In this project I outline the mediation of Donald Trump on social media and explain the need for social media regulation, and a change in how both journalists and social media companies approach issues of public interest in the platforming of dangerous ideas and individuals.

This topic is then grounded in Irish setting in regards to the increasing issue of far-right protests and movements within the Republic of Ireland.

Thesis Title

Election 2020: The Mediation and Suspension of Donald Trump by Social Media Companies in the Public Interest.
