The team chats about how Twitter mentions of certain issues can differ from mainstream media coverage. They also discuss emerging trends in elected officials’ approach to Tweeting, contrasting recent posts about inflation from Democratic and Republican Members of Congress as an example. This week’s guests also explain how the analysis has changed over time and give a preview on changes we’ll likely see in future quarters.
