    Abstract Communicative ecologies are a tool that can be used to understand the existing use of information and communication tools within a specific community. By using the ecology metaphor to understand the interaction between the technological, discursive, and social layers within the community, this research develops a holistic understanding of citizens’ communication surrounding the MobiSAM project. This paper proposes the use of sentiment analysis and topic modelling to understand how citizens are currently using technology for political participation. The paper argues that this rich understanding of current use of technology for participation can support the embedding of further interventions into existing communicative ecologies.
