No Canon We Die Like Men: The Oppositional Power of Fanon on Different Social Media Platforms examines the ways in which fans utilize the affordances of social media platforms like Twitter, TikTok, and YouTube as they interact with original works and construct a collaborative fanon. Fandom, and fanon in particular, holds a unique power over original works that resists capitalist efforts. As such, fanon models a structure for community building and collaboration which can be followed by other, non-fan groups.
