Eduard Campillo-Funollet applies a set of data analysis tools to the study of the concept of home on the social network Twitter. The main goals are to understand how the concept of home is used in Twitter, and also to show the power of data analysis techniques to study problems in humanities and social sciences. The study focuses on a dataset of tweets that contain the word home. After a preliminary exploration of the data, the chapter presents an analysis of the word frequency in the tweets, a sentiment analysis, and an application of a word sense disambiguation algorithm.
