This study aims to find out how people's sentiment towards the LSSR implementation plan in Ambon through tweets and comments on social media platforms using sentiment analysis. The data obtained amounted to 1075 tweets and comments and separated between 350 training data and testing data of 725. The data classified using the Support Vector Machine (SVM) algorithm.
