Priego, E. (2014). A Summer of #digitalhumanities - A Twitter Archive. doi: 10.6084/m9.figshare.1176099 [Dataset]


This file contains a collection of 6549 Tweets tagged with #digitalhumanities (case not sensitive) posted publicly during the period between 1 June 2014 and 15 September 2014. This file has been created and openly shared by Ernesto Priego under a Creative Commons - Attribution License to encourage open, timely research and study of academic uses of social media.The second sheet (second tab below) contains the complete archive. Sheets 4, 5, 6 (fourth, fifth and sixth tabs below) contain each the Tweets corresponding to June, July, August and 1-15 September 2014. The Tweets contained in this file were collected using Martin Hawksey’s TAGS 5.1. The data was subsequently refined manually into various sheets, which have been included here. 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 #digitalhumanities during the indicated period. This archive does not represent nor claims to represent the totality of the #digitalhumanities activity on Twitter or elsewhere. The data shared here was originally shared willingly by their authors through public accounts via Twitter postings publicly available through the Twitter API. Please note the data in this file is likely to require further refining and even deduplication. The data is shared as is. If you use or refer to this data in any way please cite and link back using the citation information above.
