An Examination of Regret in Bullying Tweets
Jun-Ming Xu, Benjamin Burchfiel, Xiaojin Zhu and Amy Bellmore
Social media users who post bullying related tweets may later experience
regret, potentially causing them to delete their posts. In this paper, we
construct a corpus of bullying tweets and periodically check the existence of
each tweet in order to infer if and when it becomes deleted. We then conduct
exploratory analysis in order to isolate factors associated with deleted posts.
Finally, we propose the construction of a regrettable posts predictor to warn
users if a tweet might cause regret.
