Curating Public Tweets for Academic Research

Center for Data Innovation: “Twitter has released a dataset of historical public tweets available to academic researchers for use. Developers update the dataset on a weekly basis to include up to 10 million monthly tweets. Users can filter by recent searches and mentions on a timeline, applying up to 1,000 concurrent rules. Previously, researchers could only access 500,000 monthly tweets and filter the data with no more than 25 concurrent rules.” [Note – Only the following qualify to access this data: Employed as an academic researcher, post-doc, professor, or fellow; A master’s student working on a thesis; A PhD candidate working on their dissertation; Affiliated with an academic institution AND have a clearly defined project.]
