In 2010 Malcolm Gladwell wrote The Revolution Will Not Be Tweeted for The New Yorker.

Eighteen months on, events in the Middle East potentially challenge the thesis and discussions continue on the relationship between social media and the Occupy movement.

Former Guardian journalist and current New Zealand Listener columnist Toby Manhire has just edited Arab Spring: Rebellion, Revolution and a New World Order, a collection of written pieces tracking the dramatic developments in the Middle East.

He joins social media author Vaughn Davis to explore the intersection of political movements and social media in a period of rapid change and immediate communications.

With digital pioneer Russell Brown.

Held in the Fisher & Paykel Auditorium, University of Aucland.
