Authors: Ghada Amoudi and Carolyn Watters

Twitter is an active social network for news sharing. Our aim is to investigate relationships between the spread of news and the data elements one can associate with individual tweets, including, news type, geographic locations of users, and characteristics (retweets, links, hashtags and sentiment) within the body of the tweets.
