Chapter 4 deals with the role of social media in the process of government formation. It analyzes the comments released on Twitter by politicians belonging to the PD, in order to record their distance from the party line. The results show that such distance has an effect on the politician’s career and emphasize the role of Twitter as a signal, suggesting that it can be used by politicians both for position-taking purposes and for boosting their own career. Furthermore, the impact of the ideological distance seems conditional on the context and the nature of the ruling coalition.
