Introduction
I am currently conducting my master thesis on the topic of hashtag activism during social movements. Through the use of a large collection of tweets from the #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd social movement from June 2020, I am studying the ways in which hashtag activism can contribute to institutional reform in the United States. I am most interested in focusing on geo-located tweets to track twitter activity spatially and put it into context with civic protests and place based reform initiatives.
