New York University: Ahead of the Election, New Tools Help NYU Researchers Shed Light on the Internet’s Dark Power. “The internet has irrevocably changed the way voters engage with our democratic institutions and, with the November 3 election just days away, journalists and researchers worldwide are working to understand how what happens online could influence the election outcome in 2020, much like it did in 2016. At NYU, a number of faculty, students, and alumni have turned their attention to this pressing issue, conducting research into rapidly-moving online phenomena and developing tools that will empower journalists, researchers, and the public to better understand how the internet and social media are informing debate, influencing voters, and shaping the political process in the United States and abroad.”
