How has my thinking changed in relation to Twitter use by academics? I bullet-point some ideas that can be taken if desired as tips or strategies by those academic colleagues who are new to Twitter.
#DH2017 starts today in Montreal. I share a snapshot of tweetage so far, and share a previous post related to access to publications in DH.
Where I share insights into the sources used to tweet from the UK Labour and Conservatives Twitter accounts from an analysis of a sample of 500 recent tweets from each account.
Like you, I've read the news today. Like so many others out there, I also wanted to write something. This is a personal reflection.
No Trumpian Tweets coming from the Web Client since 25 January this year; no Tweets from Android since 25 March. Tweets from Twitter Ads have made an appearance alternating with Twitter for iPhone Tweets since 31st March. In the 18 days of May so far, the account has tweeted every single day, totalling 90 Tweets until the morning of the 18th of May.
I have now prepared and shared a CSV file containing Tweet IDs and other metadata of 3,805 Tweets from user ID 25073877 posted publicly between Thursday February 25 2016 16:35:12 +0000 to Monday April 03 2017 12:51:01 +0000. I discuss source counts, trends and implications for research.
I prepared a dataset from Twitter user with user_id_str 25073877 containing a total of 123 public Tweets and corresponding metadata between 15 February 2017 06:40:32 and 15 March 2017 08:14:20 Eastern Time.
I have archived 3,603 public Tweets from_user_id_str 25073877. I looked at the sources of those Tweets, and the top 50 most frequent terms per main source (iPhone and Android).
I looked at a dataset of all the Tweets from DJT's account timestamped between 04/11/2016 14:56 and 13/02/2017 22:30 (Washington DC time) in order to get an idea of the change in follower numbers (user_followers_count) in that period of time.
The Altmetric Top 100 2016 was published yesterday. I share some thoughts about what the data tells us.
I made a collection of Tweets tagged with #TheDataDebates. What's the use?
I made a collection of Tweets tagged with #dhcshef published publicly between Monday September 05 2016 at 17:54:58 +0000 and Saturday September 10 2016 at 23:37:06 +0000 and I write a little bit about it.
