Description

Assistant Professor Austin Hubner of the University of Louisville (P.h.D. Ohio State University, 2022) and Associate Professor Graham Dixon recently had their study - ‘Is news media sharing an active framing process? Examining whether individual tweets retain news media frames about climate change’ - accepted for publication by Human Communication Research.

The study explains how framing can be applied to understand the dynamic nature of news sharing on Twitter. The researchers found that a majority of tweets were not a direct replication of the original news media frame. Furthermore, the likelihood that an individual chose to reframe depended on the frame of the original article.
