The third sheet in this file contains 1294 Tweets tagged with #altmetrics14 collected during the day of the workshop.
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.
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 therefore not guaranteed this file contains each and every Tweet tagged with #altmetrics14 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. 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.
