“Being political means being constituted as a subject of justice, Being political is being of the city as that space through which beings claim and seek justice” (Isin, 2005 :382)

-Forgetting the Framework: “Through orientations, strategies and technologies as forms of being political, beings develop solidaristic, agonistic and alienating relationships” (Isin, 2002 :13) Being Political E.Isin 2/2 -Construction of #citizens #strangers and #aliens – People reposition themselves again and again throughout unconscious reflection of their own

twitter tools assist in awareness and identity translation into the cyber space or virtual space
Mohamed Mahmoud as a case of using Twitter shows the tranformation between individuals and groups as twitter users for information sharing and awareness generation
methodology is not fixed based on classical texts due to the sensitivity and the current nature of the topic --> importance of personally generated and tested methodology on the field and online (twitter experimenting) Being Political Alternatives: Why original Ideas did not work out: Twitter Interview – Experiences
New hashtags, direct conversation, network relation: Any answers – Why?
1)The wording: wrong use of hashtags -> adapted hashtags
2)The network: small network related to topic -> big network
3)Positioning throughout followers, circles, friends – shares, likes and retweets – political identity
Lack of confidence – sensitive issue
