Other social media platforms may have more users, but the network now owned by the billionaire Elon Musk dominates the global conversation -- even as Twitter's future is being called into doubt. Especially in countries that have clamped down on independent journalism or foreign correspondents, Twitter provides a crucial lifeline to the outside world. “They use the features of Twitter, of social media, to create a protest identity, to create a common feeling within the movement,“ Michaelsen said.

In his work on the Syria civil war, Lister says Twitter has been “vital” to documenting war crimes and providing aid.
LONDON: Tottenham boss Antonio Conte claimed he does not have the strength in depth to compete for the Premier League title after Newcastle's 2-1 win ended Spurs' perfect home record this season on Sunday.

Conte rubbished suggestions his side could challenge for a first league title since 1961 after being thoroughly outplayed in a 2-0 defeat to Manchester United on Wednesday. “The squad doesn’t allow to lose four players in this moment,“ said Conte.
