Abstract

People have been engaged in citizen journalism for a long time, and in the era of internet and communication technology becomes rapidly advanced, the compression and convergence of ICT technology were all combined to support for citizen journalism practice. What is more is Twitter that affords mobility through access from mobile devices is becoming more suitable for citizen journalism compare to other social network platforms. Therefore, we are interested to unravel the phenomenon of Twitter access from mobile device. Is it true that Twitter and mobile device access amplifies citizen journalism engagement? This question was addressed with a quantitative study, and the results indicated that frequent access to Twitter through cell phone did not entirely explain citizen journalism engagement.
