Introduction to Twitter Data

Sat, 11/18/2017 - 9:00am
Interdisciplinary Research Collaboratory

9:00AM to noon

Looking for a hands-on start to collecting, exploring, and understanding Twitter data? The Collaboratory is here to help!

Shari Laster, Data Services Librarian, will lead a three-hour, hands-on workshop introducing attendees to twarc, an open source Python tool for collecting Twitter data in JSON format, and JQ, a command-line tool for analyzing JSON. The group will also discuss the Documenting the Now project and its implications for the ethical collection and use of Twitter data.
