Measuring global emotion

Leave a comment

The CSIRO along with the Black Dog Institute have begun a project mapping emotions expressed in content posted on Twitter.  The “We feel …” project allows you to search by emotion, region and date.  By clicking through the emotions you are able to see the words that are used to categorise Tweets.

The explorer tab (the first page that opens) provides a nice visual representation of your search…

whilst the table builder allows you to conduct a more refined search…


 There are yet to be any papers released on the data, but the site is free, relatively easy to use, and an interesting insight into global emotion.
