Tickets, Tweets, and Terror: Understanding Consumer Reactions to High-Profile Event Organization in a Climate of Heightened Insecurity

How do consumers cope in an environment of perceived risk? We address this by drawing on a dataset of 20,000 tweets, ethnography, and 15 pre- and post-match interviews in Pakistan. We find that expressions of (mis-)trust in higher authorities, ignoring situation seriousness, and furthering personal agendas help navigate panic-stricken moments.
