  • Hedonometer time series: Average happiness for Twitter - all tweets in Russian

    UVM's Hedonometer Used to Measure Russian Sentiment Over War in Ukraine

    What do Russians think about the war in Ukraine? Scientists from UVM’s Computational Story Lab collaborated with data journalists at The Economist to find out.

    Using the lab’s Hedonometer, they analyzed sentiment in Russian-language Twitter and discovered that “mood has worsened eight times more than at the start of the covid-19 pandemic.”

    See “The war in Ukraine has made Russian social-media users glum.” (NOTE: This article is behind a paywall.)
