Electric vehicles (EVs) provide significant benefits in economic development, environmental and public health. As various government agencies promote EVs, abundant misinformation and misperceptions about EVs prevail on social media. My team welcomes talented first-year students to work on analyzing messages from a variety of social media platforms, such as Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok, about EVs to identify potential misinformation and misperceptions about EVs.
