ABSTRACT

Social networking services (SNS) have become an increasingly important source of data for various fields of research. In particular, lexical analysis of microblogs such as Twitter have become important sources of data both because of the content of the microblog itself and the metadata that provides a wealth of alternative non-lexical information about a tweet such as geographic location and network of acquaintances. Among various lexical approaches, this paper attempts to theoretically review the cutting edge issues of microblog analysis, particularly focusing on emotional language and the geography of emotion. For doing this, this paper explores the evolution of three distinct fields of research in relation to emotion and geography. First, we discuss the theoretical framework of emotional analysis in modern psychology which might affect research in both geographic and computational fields. Next, major issues and computational advancements into emotional language analysis on microblogs are discussed. And then, microblog analysis in relation to emotional geography is generally discussed focused on Twitter. Lastly, what should be conducted for future research and how computational methods can be improved for geographic research purposes are discussed.
