Abstract: Epistemic injustice is a modern and still relevant concept in the field of social epistemology, and this paper attempts to view this concept through the lens of the digital realm. There is the common view that social media is a negative agent in perpetuating epistemic injustice. This paper seeks to investigate this claim, and will elaborate on the various features of social media in reducing epistemic injustice. The features include the ability to encourage collective testimony, its emancipatory nature, its ability to convey openness, and the wide reach of social media in reducing epistemic injustice. Overall, the paper focuses on how social media is still an effective tool in combatting epistemic injustice compared to other means, and that social media does not solely perpetuate it.
