Why is it important?

Instances such as riots stand as vivid examples of how the failure to monitor social media can lead to crises. Hence, there is a critical need to comprehend the trajectory of negative sentiments within social media, as this understanding is pivotal in predicting and controlling crises, mitigating adverse sentiments to avert unwarranted events.


I aspire for this article to captivate more scholars, encouraging a broader exploration of predicting crises and devising comprehensive crisis management strategies. With the indispensability of social media today, regulatory bodies should be equipped with the necessary guidelines to effectively manage and regulate social platforms, thus mitigating the likelihood of crises.
