Abstract [en]

Examining categories created by Sami users on Twitter, this article investigates the advantages and limits of global social media for a small localized group. Folksonomies illustrate the empowering potential of Twitter as a site of performance for continuity of cultural practices, vernacular expressions, and "artistic communication in small groups" (Ben-Amos 1971).
