Where can I find academic literature about Twitter and Online Profiles?

Asked by sushilovinfun (161points) May 2nd, 2011

I am beginning to do research about Twitter profiles and how they relate to our own identities. I have been having some trouble finding academic literature about the subject. Most of it focuses instead on blogs, Web 2.0 and YouTube. While these are important, I would love to see literature that instead focuses on how identities are created through things like Twitter, Facebook and Foursquare.

Have you tried databases like Academic Search Premier?

While not academic, this is a start. You are probably going to find information tied to “personal branding”. Check out Media Post; they have been running a lot of articles on personal brand lately. This is a relatively new topic, so there might not be much available in scholarly publications. However, a screen name relates closely to pen names.
