Social Media on Attitude: Mapping Strategies when Location is Optional
Track: Research & Sciences
Authors: Mary Passe-Smith, John Passe-Smith
This study explores strategies for mapping attitudinal data from messages--specifically Tweets--when the locational data does not have to be provided and can be intentionally vague or misleading, as well as to assess whether those providing location are less likely to express anti-immigrant sentiments. The long-term goal is to discover areas where animosity could result in friction or physical altercations between groups.
