Identifying intervention points in socioeconomic systems is key to advance climate change mitigation. To that end, Twitter has been extensively used to analyse climate change’s public discourse and proven to be a successful tool for monitoring public perception in other scenarios. Join Blas Kolic as he discusses his research on this topic.

The research studies the Twitter conversation on climate change during 2019, when important climate-related movements occurred, such as “Extinction Rebellion” or “Fridays For Future”. The goal is to characterise the complexity of the overall conversation on Twitter by studying the impact of its leading users on their audiences and analysing how these audiences interact.
