NiemanLab: On Twitter, fossil fuel companies’ climate misinformation is subtle

NiemanLab: On Twitter, fossil fuel companies’ climate misinformation is subtle. “In 2015, when a colleague and I first researched what key fossil fuel trade groups were saying on Twitter about climate solutions during the landmark COP21 summit in Paris, we found they were largely promoting a narrative that the Obama administration’s climate policies lacked domestic support — despite public opinion research indicating otherwise. This time around, using the consumer insights software Brandwatch, I studied recent English-language tweets from top oil, gas and coal producers globally during COP26, as well as from the American Petroleum Institute and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.”
