Hi, I am Irisa Shrestha, I am a Computer Science major at Earlham College. I will be doing Twitter Sentiment Analysis of COVID-19 Tweets to see if people’s sentiments are aligned with significant developments in the COVID-19 timeline.

Abstract from my Senior Capstone Research Project Proposal:

Nowadays, people use social media to express their feelings and thoughts regarding different topics. During the COVID-19 pandemic, people have been very active in social media, sharing information, personal experiences, and emotions. Twitter is one of the social media platforms where people are very active. Sentiment Analysis of Tweets can provide really interesting insights about the public’s preferences and sentiments. In this research, I will determine whether the sentiment changes of people’s COVID-19 related Tweets align with significant developments in the COVID-19 timeline.
