The Tweets contained in this file were collected by Ernesto Priego using Martin Hawksey's TAGS 6.0. 

Only users with at least 3 followers were included in the archive. Retweets have been included. Data might require refining and deduplication.

Please note that both research and experience show that the Twitter search API is not 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" (Gonzalez-Bailon, Sandra, et al. 2012). It cannot be guaranteed this file contains each and every Tweet tagged with #LibraryCarpentry during the indicated period, and is shared for comparative and indicative educational research purposes only.

The data is shared as is. The sharing of this dataset complies with Twitter's Developer Rules of the Road. 

Only content from public accounts is included and was obtained from the Twitter Search API. The shared data is also publicly available to all Twitter users via the Twitter Search API and available to anyone with an Internet connection via the Twitter and Twitter Search web client and mobile apps without the need of a Twitter account.

The profile_image_url and entities_str metadata were removed before public sharing.

Each Tweet and its contents were published openly on the Web with the queried hashtag and are responsibility of the original authors.
