description:
Systematic investigation of attitudes expressed in Arabic on Twitter towards the United States and Iran during 2012-13 shows how the analysis of social media can illuminate the politics of contemporary political discourse and generates an informative analysis of anti-Americanism in the Middle East. We not only analyze overall attitudes, but using a novel events-based analytical strategy, we examine reactions to specific events, including the removal of Mohamed Morsi in Egypt, the Innocence of Muslims video, and reactions to possible US intervention in Syria. We also examine the Boston Marathon bombings of April 2013 and Hurricane Sandy, in which the United States suffered damage from human beings or from nature. Our findings reinforce evidence from polling that anti-Americanism is pervasive and intense, but they also suggest that this animus is directed less toward American society than toward the impingement of the United States on other countries. The Arabic Twitter discourse toward Iran is at least as negative as the discourse toward the United States, and less ambivalent. Anti-Americanism may be a specific manifestation of a more general phenomenon: resentment toward powerful countries perceived as interfering in national and regional affairs.
