Why so Emotional? An Analysis of Emotional (Bot-generated) Content on Twitter
We give a brief overview of a three year data science project on the messaging behavior that arises in online social networks. In this presentation, we especially discuss how emotional messages sent during crisis events shape the communication patterns on Twitter. To this end, we analyzed a data-set consisting of 23.3 million tweets that have been sent during eighteen different crisis events in ten different countries.
In particular, we use the novel concept of emotion-exchange motifs to uncover the basic building blocks of complex emotion-exchange networks.
Among other things, we will also present some findings on characteristic emotion-exchange motifs that appear when so called social bots interact with human users. Our findings indicate that emotion-exchange motifs might help to distinguish between human-like and bot-like communication behavior.
