Subsequent to the experiment « Twitter and Philosophy », led with the cooperation of the Canada Research Chair on Digital Textualities on November and December 2016, Adriano Fabris will discuss about the experiment's outcomes and his reflections on Twitter and Social Networks.

In this conference, I would discuss some issues related to the Internet communication: is the ethics' basic set of problems completely changed? Are the fundamental questions still valable nowadays? On the other hand, which are the newest ethics questions about this mass communication instrument? Are we facing an expression's freedom empowerment? Thanks to Internet, are we more and more free, or is it developing new formes of control, domination, and power? Which is the difference between ethics of the Internet and ethics on the Internet?

With the collaboration of the CRIHN - Intercollegiate Research Center on Digital Humanities and the Italian Institute of Culture.
