Looking at Twitter use among responders to terrorist attacks or earthquake. Based on two theories of rumours, wants to look for conditions that lead to spread of misinformation vs. collective sense making and problem solving. Coding tweets for rumour, ambiguity, anxiety (not clear how that works). Interesting theory, but seems like reducing tweets to binary data is not the richest approach.

Excellent topic and an exciting study. I love it!
