The Rest Is History

8. The Echo of a Coffee House

The Rest Is History

Social media has colonised the world but is it really a new phenomenon? Tom Holland and Dominic Sandbrook debate the effects of technical innovations from the printing press to Twitter. Do they really make a difference?

Or was Swift right when he said: β€œIt is the folly of too many, to mistake the echo of a London coffee-house for the voice of the kingdom.”
