In the article Tamássy and Géring analyse research projects that apply discourse analysis approaches on social media content. The researchers focused on the methodological and theoretical frameworks of the reviewed publications, finding that the use of discourse analysis is the most prevalent as a pure methodology and as a complex methodological and theoretical framework.
