Automated analysis of charities’ communication styles on Twitter

Phethean, Christopher, Tiropanis, Thanassis and Harris, Lisa (2013) Automated analysis of charities’ communication styles on Twitter At DE2013: Open Digital, United Kingdom. 04 - 06 Nov 2013.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


This extended abstract presents an overview of a technology demonstration that would consist of a novel piece of software for automatically analysing charitable organisations’ posts on the micro-blogging service Twitter. The main contribution is an inbuilt taxonomy of communication styles, which is used to classify each charity based on the results of the analysis undertaken. The demonstration will showcase this automated process, as well as explaining the restrictive properties for each category, and why certain charities are classified into certain styles.
