Twitter logoThe PrEP on Twitter Project examines the role of stigma in the social media environment of young Black men who have sex with men (MSM) as a barrier to HIV prevention with PrEP.

Project Aims:

Aim 1: Retrieve a large collection of PrEP-related posts from Twitter’s public platform using a curated list of search terms
Aim 2: Comprehensively analyze the PrEP Tweets for stigma content to identify stigma barriers to PrEP uptake and persistence
Aim 3: Identify targets for tailored interventions
