Summary


REPRESENTATİON OF POSTS ON TWİTTER WİTH THE HASHTAG #12 APRİL ON THE INTERNET NEWS SİTES

The subject of this study is the representation of posts on Twitter promoting abuse and violence against women under the hashtag #12 April. The content, which began to spread on April 12, sparked a massive backlash on Twitter, with too many tweets on the subject in the following few days. The revelations of abuse and violent posts -- although tweets and news stories that later emerged for humour and criticism circulated -- have caused outrage, prompting news organizations to address the issue. The study aims to determine the way the subject is framed in news stories on internet news sites about abuse and violence on Twitter under the hashtag #12 April. Within the scope of the study, 70 news texts and a column on 53 websites were examined through content analysis between 12-15 April 2021. Although it is understood that technical expression (heavily conveying the statements of the General Directorate of Police) is used more in the news, elements of moral panic are also found significantly in the examination of linguistic framing. In addition, it was determined that the news was largely episodic and included social and judicial developments related to the singular event. In the text review, it is understood that the content that deals with the subject from the thematic framework are limited. Although a small number of news stories that make up a metaphorically critical meaning have been detected with the images used (photos of the social movement against violence against women), it has generally been determined that the texts are structured episodically. In the news, screenshots of tweets subject to crime and police logos or descriptions have been used much more extensively. In the images, significant elements of fear, anxiety and panic were detected directly or metaphorically related to the subject. The study expects to contribute to the framing literature, as it is one of the limited numbers of studies focusing on framing problematic behaviours in cyberspace in Turkey
