Social-media health-related conversations

Social media

We participated in the “Social Media Mining for Health” (SMM4H) challenges, obtaining the best results in a task related to the identification of mentions of personal health issues [Ellendorff et al, 2019]. In 2020, as a response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we developed the “COVID-19 Twitter Monitor” [Cornelius et al 2019], a tool that supports the analysis of Twitter conversations related to COVID-19.
