DS4CG 2023. This project takes a longitudinal approach to analyzing the #StopAsianHate hashtag on Twitter in order to understand changes in hashtag usage. We developed a model that converts text into embeddings, clusters the embeddings into groups, and links the similar groups to reveal data about context surrounding #StopAsianHate. By analyzing the main accounts driving conversation and identifying transitions in hashtags to discussions, we can better understand social media discussion mechanisms.
