Abstract

This study aims to determine the public’s response through social media according to the Covid-19 Pandemic in Indonesia through Twitter. Using Twitter accounts, community coalition accounts responded to the Covid-19 pandemic in Indonesia, particularly the @laporcovid accounts. The Covid-19 case in Indonesia in early March 2020 affected all sectors. Secondary data obtained through NVIVO 12+ software is analyzed by interpretation of data obtained from May 2020 to January 2021. The government is forced to take policies in dealing with a pandemic that cannot be controlled. As the main part affected by this situation, the community tries to respond to the policies taken by the government. The community responds to the policy through various spaces. One of the spaces used is social media. Open space through social media makes it easier for people to respond to policies taken by the government. Netizens voiced responses to protests, data, education and advocacy in handling Covid-19, and the assessment of social media accounts, transparency, coordination, and participation is essential in Indonesia.
