Abstract

What do tweets posted in the run-up to the EU referendum reveal about the motivations for the vote? Marco Bastos and Dan Mercea (City, University of London) found that nationalist and economic concerns dominated people's concerns, but populist sentiments were less apparent. As the referendum got closer, there was an upsurge in globalist tweets.
