Lecture: Trust, Elections and Twitter

How to ignore someone so loudly it becomes conspicuous

How my personal Twitter campaign led to changes in the Norwegian electoral system 10 days before the Parliamentary Election. A walk through of what happened and how it all came down to regular people taking time out of their lives to speak up.

What happened from beginning to end. What made the news and what didn't. How did it feel to be in it and how I was treated by the public, by the government and by the media.

How transparency and suspiciousness is fundamental to an election system and how the lack of transparency drove me to dig further into the ballot counting system in Norway.
