As an application study of the network agenda-setting model, this paper examines how the media and public network agendas can differ, based on which political candidate was mentioned along with the immigration issue in news coverage and in public tweets. Through network analyses, this paper shows that there were differences in the salient attributes of the immigration issue, and that the dominant narrative structure of the issue depended on which political candidate was mentioned.
