The aim of this dissertation is to better understand the spread of issues in social media, a relatively new phenomenon that is not fully understood in academia. The phenomenon has also captured the interest of organisations, as it may cause or coincide with organisational crises. Following issue spread is not easy, as issues emerge in dynamic interaction amongst many actors who are engaged in voluminous debate within varying media environments. This research was based on insights from different disciplines – in particular, communication sciences and information systems. It utilised quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods.
