[First paragraph] This chapter examines the hashtag #greferendum, focusing on both social and semantic networks (#Grexit, #oxi campaign), and it analyses Twitter data, which collected using NodeXL, on three significant days: the announcement of the referendum, the day of the bailout expiration and the actual date of the referendum. Data analysis draws on cyberconflict theory (Karatzogianni, 2006, 2015), to situate the Greek Referendum in the wider sociopolitical context of anti-austerity mobilizations in Greece and discusses the contribution of Twitter in the formation, polarization and mobilization within the context of a transnational networked public sphere.
