Abstract: In this paper we deal with Twitter and the presence of the keyword “Macedonia”in tweets over a period of time. We searched for the same term in threedifferent languages, i.e. “Μακεδονíα”, “Macedonia” and “Македонска -Македониjа”, since we are primarily interested in views from Greece andFYROM without excluding views from other regions. We use methods fromSocial Network Analysis (SNA) in order to create networks of users, calculatesome main network metrics, measure user importance and investigate thepresence of possible fragmentations—communities among them. We furthermoreproceed to a form of content analysis, using pairs of words withintweets, in order to obtain main ideas, trends and public views that circulatedover the network.
