Between August 2014 and July 2015, we accumulated 193 379 tweets that are HPV-related classified them by vaccine belief and faculties. We analysed a subsample of tweets containing the terms ‘gay’, ‘bisexual’ and ‘MSM’ (N = 2306), and analysed distributions of belief and traits making use of chi-square. HPV-related tweets containing GB+MSM terms occupied 1% of our test. The subsample possessed a vaccine sentiment that is largely positive. Nonetheless, a proportion of ‘gay’ and ‘bisexual’ tweets failed to point out the vaccine, and a percentage of ‘gay’ and ‘MSM’ tweets had a sentiment that is negative. Topics diverse by GB+MSM term HPV risk texting was commonplace in ‘bisexual’ (25%) tweets, and HPV transmission through sex/promiscuity texting was common in ‘gay’ (18%) tweets.
