German Election: Lessons
from social media sentiment analysis

Germany has its federal election on Sunday 24 September. Overall 34 parties, led by candidates like Angela Merkel and Martin Schulz, compete for seats in the Bundestag.

The SSIX project developed a tool that maps the public sentiment on social media about the main candidates, parties and topics discussed during the German elections.
