Abstract:  This editorial introduces the thematic issue of Online Communities and Populism. I begin by laying out the justification for taking up this topic and then articulate why Media and Communication is the ideal location to hold this discussion. Then I introduce the articles in this issue by listing the questions these articles take up, the four major themes these articles take on, and preview each article.

Keywords:  online communities; online populism; political communication; populism; populist discourse; networked media; social media
