The @IndigenousX twitter account was launched in March 2012. Since then it has risen to more than 41 000 followers, and over 300 Indigenous hosts on the account have shared thousands of stories, facts, reports, pictures and laughs with an ever increasing audience.

This seminar will discuss the formation of IndigenousX as a social media project turned independent media platform. It will explore some of the past achievements of IndigenousX, looking at how it has played a disruptive role in traditional media and more broadly within the national discourse on Indigenous affairs. It will also discuss the challenges IndigenousX faces in establishing itself as a sustainable platform for the promotion and amplification of Indigenous voices online.

Part of the Indigenous Australia and Digital Futures seminars series.
