Twingly Report about the FRA Debate

This summer the Swedish political blogosphere has been in flames over a law proposal allowing a civil organization to monitor all Internet traffic crossing Swedish borders, with the purpose to fight terrorism and organized crime.

Twingly has surveyed the debate and discussions in the blogosphere about the political process. In the published report we present our findings and conclusions.

The report was commissioned by the Swedish Social Democratic party.

Update: Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet writes about the report. SvD writes about our finding that as much as 19% of articles in traditional media covering the debate and proceedings around the FRA law between May 27th and June 27th also referred to blogs in one way or another. This figure is well above what has been found in other cases and shows that Swedish bloggers had a large influence on the debate.

These figures are available in the accompanying media coverage report from Greenhill Relations.
