ResumenThe present poster reflects a study on the social diffusion of science and public attitudes toward science taking advantage of the available data of the online social network Twitter (real-time nature) and focused on a specific science new that turned out to be a hoax. I consider two lines of study of different nature: (1) on the one hand the aim is to offer insights into to what extent the structure of the network influences the information spread and serves to capture public attention, as well as identify common features of the major influencers; (2) on the other hand I carry out a deeper analysis concerning to the content of the message – tweet–, by using data mining technics, with the purpose of exploring the main elements that play a key role in terms of laypeople interest, trust and engagement, and to observe the predisposition to change opinion while dealing with a fallacious case in which there was no scientific evidence.
