Abstract

The mediatization of emotions emerges as an affordance of social media, the study of which involves paying attention to digital practices and the formation of the sense of public affection, of connected audiences expressing their participation through expressions of sentiment. This happens both for the great events and for the daily demonstrations of support or of its negation. Here we choose to analyze the tweets in which the users express their opinions, sentiments, emotions on Pope Francis’s Election. To reconstruct the hashtag semantics, we use multimodal content analysis.
