Nina Cesare's and Jennifer Branstad's work using Twitter to study mourning appears in the news.

Nina and Jenni are in the news with their recent ASA conference paper looking at the influence of social media on changing views of death and manner of mourning.   The research has been picked up and covered by a number of sources, including the NY Times Magazine (see link) among many other outlets.
