  Title Comparison of Social Media in English and Russian During Emergencies and Mass Convergence Events Type Conference Article

  Abstract Twitter is used for spreading information during crisis events. In this paper, we first retrieve event-related information

posted in English and Russian during six disasters and sports events that received wide media coverage in both

languages, using an adaptive information filtering method for automating the collection of about 100 000 messages.

We then compare the contents of these messages in terms of 17 informational and linguistic features using a

difference in differences approach. Our results suggest that posts in each language are focused on different types

of information. For instance, almost 50% of the popular people mentioned in these messages appear exclusively

in either the English messages or the Russian messages, but not both. Our results also suggest differences in the

adoption of platform mechanics during crises between Russian-speaking and English-speaking users. This has

important implications for data collection during crises, which is almost always focused on a single language.
