Discourse Analysis is a relatively modern field, with most of the breakthroughs and developments occurring in the latter half of the 20th century. Discourse Analysis is not a single method or a single approach to language, rather it is a family of approaches, usually called traditions. This paper starts by providing a quick overview of Discourse Analysis and some of its key ideas before going on to explore how Discourse Analysis can be utilized by researchers wishing to work with the discourse of social media.
