Priego, E. (2014). A #Transitions5, #ComicsForum14 and #ICAF14 Archive. doi: 10.6084/m9.figshare.1250083 [Dataset]


This file contains three archives of Tweets corresponding to the #Transitions5, #ComicsForum14 and #ICAF14 hashtags (case not sensitive). For more information about the events corresponding to these hashtags please see the Summary sheet in this file. This file was created and shared by Ernesto Priego (Centre for Information Science, City University London) with a Creative Commons- Attribution license (CC-BY) for academic research and educational use. The three archives contain 2173 Tweets published publicly and tagged with #Transitions5, #ComicsForum14 and #ICAF14. The Tweets contained in this file were collected using Martin Hawksey’s TAGS 5.1. This is a.xlsx file that contains 8 sheets. 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. The Time column (E) indicates the event's local time zone. I also included some quick comparative insights from the three archives (Summary sheet). 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 not guaranteed this file contains each and every Tweet tagged with the archived hashtags 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.
