This commentary explores the epistemological vector of glitch/glitch proposed by Leszczynski and Elwood for the study of events which are non-performative or 'do not compute' in computational cities. There is a particular focus on the potential for this disposition to foreground more marginalised urban and computational subjects and their experiences. It argues that glitch/glitch can help analysts to identify and draw attention to instances where these subjects are able to more fully embody the role of citizen.
