Using Tweet Feel which is real-time sentiment from twitter. Tweet Feel gives a numerical score as to how positive or negative tweets are about a given topic. Its analysis is based not just on emoticons, but also words and phrases.
A search for “Obama” this morning before his tax reform and debt-cutting plan address to the nation shows a current sentiment of 64 percent Negative. Many of the tweets once analyzed one can identify both facetious and sarcastic tweets that TweetFeel identifies as negative or positive, an example is a tweet such as “Donald trump said obama is the worst president #liespeopletell.” TweetFeel identifies the word “worst” and automatically sets the tweet as negative. Never the less the correlation stands with the current approval rating and the twitter-sphere making their vocalization about how they feel about a president, brand, or product.
Ultimately, it’s a feature that brands and companies can use to see the sentiment via tweets and get perspective of how people feel about your product, service, or brand.
Tweetfeel defines that as a positive attitude (defined by green text, as opposed to red).
