Daily Texan: New lab uses data to analyze social media

Daily Texan: New lab uses data to analyze social media. “The Computational Media Lab, a new project from the School of Journalism, is combining computer science and social media to analyze millions of tweets, Facebook comments and more. The lab is currently working on three projects including one analyzing 3 million tweets with the word ‘Trump’ from President Donald Trump’s first 30 days in office. The other two projects will explore Facebook comments on Trump and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s pages during the election, and analyze tweets with the hashtag #WomenCanStopTrump.”
