This work-in-progress paper focuses on the content of Twitter messages related to the 2016 terrorist attack on the Berlin Christmas market. We chose topic modeling to investigate the Twitter data and the terror management theory perspective to understand why people used Twitter in the aftermath of the attack. In particular, by connecting people and providing a real-time communication channel, Twitter helps its users collectively negotiate their worldviews and re-establish self-esteem. We provide first results and discuss next steps.</dcterms:abstract> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:title>Terror Management and Twitter : The Case of the 2016 Berlin Terrorist Attack</dcterms:title> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/42"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Schwemmer, Carsten</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2019-01-09T11:11:42Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Fischbach, Kai</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/42"/> <dc:creator>Schwemmer, Carsten</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Fischer, Diana</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/44479"/> <dc:contributor>Fischbach, Kai</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2019-01-09T11:11:42Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:issued>2018</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Fischer, Diana</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
