Abstract:In the following poster we examine how differences in location of @--‐mentions constitute both differences in meaning and social signaling in the context of the 2012 United States Presidential election. Through our analysis we establish that the Twitter handles of Barack Obama and Mitt Romney have distinctly different positions in tweets where they are mentioned. We expand on this finding by exploring how these positions change over time and how different syntactical features affect this position.
