Vaccari, Chadwick, and O'Loughlin's "Dual Screening the Political" Wins the Walter Lippmann Award

Cristian Vaccari, Andrew Chadwick, and Ben O'Loughlin's article "Dual Screening the Political: Media Events, Social Media, and Citizen Engagement" (Journal of Communication 65 (6), pp. 1041–1061) has been recognized at this year's American Political Science Association (APSA) Annual Meeting held in Philadelphia.

The study was given the 2016 APSA Political Communication Section's Walter Lippmann Award for the Best Article in the Field of Political Communication.

The study finds that “lean-forward” dual screening practices, such as commenting live on social media as a political debate unfolds, and engaging with conversations via Twitter hashtags, have the strongest and most consistent positive associations with political engagement.
