The Tweets contained in this file were collected using Martin Hawksey’s TAGS 5.1. This file contains 2 sheets.
Only users with at least 2 followers were included in the archive. Retweets have been included. An initial automatic deduplication was performed but data might require further deduplication. The Time column (D) has times in British Summer Time (BST).
Please note that both research and experience show that the Twitter search API isn't 100% reliable. Large tweet volumes affect the search collection process. The API might "over-represent the more central users", not offering "an accurate picture of peripheral activity" (González-Bailón, Sandra, et al. 2012). It is not guaranteed this file contains each and every Tweet tagged with #1AMconf during the indicated period, and is shared for comparative and indicative educational and research purposes only.
Please note the data in this file is likely to require further refining and even deduplication. The data is shared as is. The contents of each Tweet are responsibility of the original authors. This dataset is shared to encourage open research into scholarly activity on Twitter. If you use or refer to this data in any way please cite and link back using the citation information above.
