I am looking for suggestions on citations of recent networks-oriented work on the role of Twitter and/or other social media in achieving large-scale mobilizations, such as during Arab Spring or the Occupy movements.  I would like to read some of that work and cite it in a work I am writing now, and possibly include it the next time I teach my Social Networks grad class. Thanks. 

Paul
