Say it with an Emoji: Mapping Sentiment During the #MeToo Twitter Movement is a data visualization project that explores how we use emojis to communicate sentiment online.
Inspired by the online social justice movements of recent years, this project investigates how emojis were used during one of the heights of the #MeToo movement on Twitter. While emojis are commonly used as a supplement to text, here they’ve been brought to the forefront to create this networked sentiment map. Each emoji can be interacted with to discover its connections with other emojis and learn more information about how it was used.
