Entre paz y odio: Encuadres de la elección presidencial colombiana de 2014 en Twitter

Víctor García-Perdomo

DOI: 10.7764/cdi.41.1241


Este estudio examina cómo dos grupos en Twitter —los 100 periodistas con más seguidores y el público— encuadraron las elecciones presidenciales colombianas de 2014. Se usó un software con un algoritmo capaz de analizar grandes bases de datos que recolectó y categorizó los tuits publicados por estos grupos durante la campaña electoral (15 de mayo al 20 de junio). Se realizaron dos análisis: los resultados del primero mostraron que los periodistas siguieron el encuadre temático, mientras que el público se interesó en el conflicto. En el segundo, los periodistas adoptaron el odio como encuadre y el público, el de la paz.

Palabras clave

paz; odio; encuadre; política; medios; Colombia; Twitter
