Grygiel talks to the Washington Post about tweets escalating world tensions

January 10, 2020

The Washington Post interviewed Jennifer Grygiel, assistant professor of communications, for their article, "For Trump and Iran, trolling on Twitter helped escalate tensions on the battlefield."

“Tweets can’t be recalled,” Grygiel said. “They’re like an instant [news] wire. They can move stock markets. Let’s not assume a tweet could not start a war.”
