  Keywords Disaster, Pattern, User Classification, Mood Detection, Twitter  
  Abstract We analyzed a sample of large tweet collections gathered since 2011, to expand understanding about tweeting

patterns and emotional responses of different types of tweeters regarding disasters. We selected three examples for

each of four disaster types: school shooting, bombing, earthquake, and hurricane. For each collection, we deployed

our novel model TwiRole for user classification, and an existing deep learning model for mood detection. We

found differences in the daily tweet count patterns, between the different types of events. Likewise, there were

different average scores and patterns of moods (fear, sadness, surprise), both between types of events, and between

events of the same type. Further, regarding surprise and fear, there were differences among roles of tweeters. These

results suggest the value of further exploration as well as hypothesis testing with our hundreds of event and trend

related tweet collections, considering indications in those that reflect emotional responses to disasters.
