About This Project

We hypothesize that the subject matter and emotional context of tweets about medical topics have evolved over time. Our research aims to further characterize these topics. Our secondary aim is to study the readability of patient-specific education materials available through public microblogging social media networks and mobile applications. We hypothesize that these materials are written at high reading levels precluding understanding by most Americans.
