Abstract: Relatively little is known about the news consumption amongst social media users, despite the proliferation of news sharing, distribution platforms and news aggregators. In this paper, we present the Twitter News Model (TNM), a computational data-driven approach to elucidate the dynamics of news consumption on Twitter. We apply the TNM to a dataset of interactions between users and journalists/ newspapers to reveal what drives users’ consumption of news on Twitter, and predictively relate users’ news beliefs, motivations, and attitudes to their consumption of news.
