Abstract

The partial lockdown in April, 2020 that was implemented by the Indonesian government during the COVID-19 pandemic drew a lot of criticism from the public. Most of the criticism arose from the weak enforcement of the partial lockdown that was implemented. In addition, many people rejected the use of social restrictions, which had serious negative implications for the economy and the poor in Indonesia. This study examines the public’s responses to the benefits and disadvantages of implementing the Community Activity Restrictions (PPKM) policy on Twitter. The results show that there are two clusters in the conversations on Twitter, which are the Pro-opposition cluster and X Cluster. Negative tendencies and opinions tend to dominate the public conversation on Twitter regarding PPKM policies, which has had significant implications for public confidence in the government’s ability to handle the spread of COVID-19 in Indonesia
