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). Therefore, it cannot be guaranteed this file contains each and every tweet tagged with #or2014 during the indicated period.
Some deduplication and refining has been performed to avoid spam tweets and duplication.. Some characters in some tweets' text might not have been decoded correctly.
