Weller, Katrin; Dadzie, Aba-Sah and Radovanović, Danica (2016). Making Sense of Microposts (#Microposts2016) Computational Social Sciences Track. In: CEUR Workshop Proceedings, 1691 pp. 29–32.



For the second time, the #Microposts workshop features a track to highlight social science perspectives on micro communication structures in online environments. This paper introduces the #Microposts2016 (Computational) Social Science Track, which all contribute to connecting research methods and approaches in computer science and social science. By providing a forum for closer interaction between the two fields, the track is becoming a platform for interdisciplinary projects and new ideas to combine different methodologies and theories. For this year’s special track we see the trend of relating Microposts to external demographics or survey data as a way to better understand Microposts in their broader contexts.
