Abstract (150 Words)

While the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has been widely studied, relatively fewer attentions about the social media network and sentimental reaction have been available, especially on post COVID-19 sustainable tourism. Using Twitter Archiving Google Sheet, tweets were collected with the hashtags: #covid19 and #tourism; #sustainabletourism or #ecotourism or #responsibletourism. Tableau and Gephi are used to visualize and aggregate the social media network. By using R Studio, the word frequency, association and sentiment analysis are carried out. The social media network and sentiment analysis provides new discoveries about post COVID-19 sustainable tourism tweets. Text information from social media can be used to supplement data sources and provides direct insights into public perceptions of post COVID-19 sustainable tourism. According to the analysis results, this paper also tries to use related social behavior theories to explain the observed social media user behaviors.

Text Mining Tweets on Post COVID-19 Sustainable Tourism Through Social Media Network and Sentiment Analysis

While the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has been widely studied, relatively fewer attentions about the social media network and sentimental reaction have been available, especially on post COVID-19 sustainable tourism. Using Twitter Archiving Google Sheet, tweets were collected with the hashtags: #covid19 and #tourism; #sustainabletourism or #ecotourism or #responsibletourism. Tableau and Gephi are used to visualize and aggregate the social media network. By using R Studio, the word frequency, association and sentiment analysis are carried out. The social media network and sentiment analysis provides new discoveries about post COVID-19 sustainable tourism tweets. Text information from social media can be used to supplement data sources and provides direct insights into public perceptions of post COVID-19 sustainable tourism. According to the analysis results, this paper also tries to use related social behavior theories to explain the observed social media user behaviors.
