What I meant by data cleaning is that
- Removing Punctuations
- Lower Casing
- Removing Stop words
- Removing irrelevant symbols, links and emojis
According to my knowledge, things like Punctuations, Capital Letters, Stop words like 'But' and emojis and such tend to intensifies the VADER sentiment value, or in other words it affects the sentiment.
So should I clean my data or leave punctuations, capital letters and stop words since VADER makes use of them as well?
