    Abstract:
    The Uvalde Shooting: A case of amplification of political polarization by social media The rise of social media, its vast adoption, and its ability to amplify voices has a deep impact on society and polarization of thought. The Uvalde shooting in Texas reignited these divisions on gun control. We hypothesized that analyzing patterns of Twitter discourse amplification after the Uvalde shooting can be used to characterize public sentiment Our data suggests that Twitter feeds analysis can be used to characterize twitter options based on amplification.
