Messaging MPs on Twitter

Hostility towards MPs

This University of Central Lancashire research project is based on a dataset of more than a million tweets sent to British MPs since January, which gave us a ranking of the most messaged MPs. We used machine learning software to measure the levels of hostility and negativity behind the messages people send to politicians, and found which MPs faced the most hostility. We will soon be able to show you how hostility towards the various parties and personalities has tracked over time, check back soon! You can learn more about our research methods here.
