This study proposes inequality in thread popularity, identity expression, and incivility as the sign of action coordination, localization, and radicalism respectively. Nuance differences between explicit incivility and dog-whistling incivility were observed. A comparison of Hong Kong’s two protests illustrates that threads users’ attention is biased concentrated. An examination of how users in a well-known online forum shape uncivil reactions and thread popularity then provide insights into how movements are organized, mobilized and perceived through communication.
