Events that occur in far distance can be wired to people living in elsewhere in the world within minutes or seconds away. We are more connected then we were 20 or 30 years ago.

In political realm, digital communication creates a new sense of political engagement. It profoundly introduces the concept of e-citizenship where people can show their support by signing online petitions. Ordinary people can also create and join hashtags that generate political buzz.
