Abstract

This project sought to identify the most visible Twitter users before and after one of the most critical events in recent climate politics: President Trump declaring his intent on 01/06/17 to withdraw from the Paris Agreement. The lead-up to, and aftermath of, the much-anticipated announcement brought an unprecedented social media focus to the issue of climate change, providing an opportunity for debate and a strong ‘retort’ to Trump and his supporters from an emerging counterpublic.
