Abstract To this date, research on crisis informatics has focused on the detection of trust in Twitter data through the use of message structure, sentiment, propagation and author. Little research has examined the effects of perceived emotion of these messages in the crisis response domain. Toward detecting useful messages in case of crisis, we examine perceived emotions of these messages and how the different emotions affect the perceived usefulness and trustworthiness. Our analysis is carried out on two datasets gathered from Twitter concerning hurricane Sandy in 2012 and the Boston Bombing 2013. The results indicate that there is a significant difference in the perceived emotions that contribute towards the perceived trustworthiness and usefulness. This could have impacts on how messages from social media data are analyzed for use in crisis response.
