Abstract
Over the past years, new technologies and specially online social networks have penetrated into world?s population at an accelerated pace. In this talk we analyze collected data from the web application Twitter, in order to describe the structure and dynamics of the emergent social networks, based on complexity science. We focused on a Venezuelan protest that took place exclusively by Twitter during December, 2010. We found community structure with highly connected hubs and three di?erent kinds of user behavior that determine the information flow dynamics. We noticed that even though online social networks appear to be a pure social environment, traditional media still holds loads of influence inside the network.
