Second-Level Agenda Setting in 140 Characters: How Journalists Used Twitter to Report the Newtown Shooting

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This study explores second-level agenda setting and social media through a content analysis of journalists’ tweets during a 10-day period following the Newtown, Conn., shooting. The results show gun control was by far the cognitive attribute most frequently identified, followed by timeline and story details, news content, and emotional reactions. They also show that, in terms of affective attributes, the tweets were neutral in about half the cases, but negativity increased as time progressed.
