    Exclamation Help please with my research topic!!

    How can we study the Arab uprisings (or if you want to call it the Arab spring) from a linguistic perspective? i want to find a suitable topic for my research thesis focusing on the Arab uprisings ( since it's one of the hottest topics today, i guess) but i still find it too broad I've been thinking of exploiting the role of social media in these revolutions but it still needs to be further narrowed down and i can't seem to find enough resources on the internet about this topic. Please any suggestions would be welcomed !! TIA

    First, I would like to thank you for your quick reply. and I do realize I could find valuable information in magazines (like you stated), all kinds of journals and books (not just in the internet) ... however since this is a NEW topic there are not enough resources and the focus in this topic has been strictly political or historical. Probably the best thing i could do at this point is to start collecting data like you recommended. thanks anyway for your feedback
