Radovanović, Danica; Weller, Katrin and Dadzie, Aba-Sah (2015). Making Sense of Microposts (#Microposts2015) Social Sciences Track. In: Proceedings of the the 5th Workshop on Making Sense of Microposts (Rowe, Matthew; Stankovic, Milan and Dadzie, Aba-Sah eds.), pp. 29–31.



For the first time in its five year history the #Microposts workshop features a designated Social Science track. This paper introduces this new track by situating it within the overall workshop objectives. It highlights the importance of interdisciplinary studies in the attempt to make sense of Web user activities in general, and in the generation and consumption of Microposts in particular. This paper provides examples of related work in the field, such as Computational Social Science, reviews previous contributions to the #Microposts by the Social Science research community, and introduces the two papers presented in the track.
