The line between public and private on Twitter : A study of Swedish twitter users' views on the sharing of private information on Twitter (English)
Abstract [en]

In this report we make an attempt to analyze where Swedish Twitter users believe the line is drawn between the private and public. Our goal is to find out what the factors are that determine what they decide to write on Twitter and what not. A survey was sent out and spread amongst Swedish Twitter users during one week to provide us with the data to answer our question formulation. The results do not draw an exact line between the private and the public but it nevertheless provides us with an idea of what users think is inappropriate to write about on Twitter. Through the study we found out that our respondents believe that it is inappropriate to write private information about others than them self. They also believe that racist and offensive comments are inappropiate. Our study also gives us some indication that Swedish Twitter users are rather open concerning sharing of private information about themselves.
