Twitter Project

The Twitter team in CCNSD studies Farsi Twitter and its trending topics. Twitter data, in our team, is used as an indicator of the social, cultural and political concerns and interests of Twitter users. We, however, assume that the impact of Twitter, and other social media, does not stop online, and the processes is part of a much larger sphere of influence on Farsi speaking countries and diasporic communities. Currently, we are working on two different projects (1) human-bot interaction in the formation of collective identities in Farsi Twitter and (2) a typology of fake news based on their propagation.
