Twitter event datasets (2012-2016)

posted on 12.10.2018 by Arkaitz Zubiaga
This collection includes data for 30 different Twitter datasets associated with real world events. The datasets were collected between 2012 and 2016, always using the streaming API with a set of keywords.

These datasets are released in accordance with Twitter's TOS, which allows sharing of tweet IDs and are intended for non-commercial research.

Note: Twitter's developer policy doesn't allow sharing more than 1,500,000 tweet IDs (https://dev.twitter.com/overview/terms/policy#updated-policy), unless the author is affiliated with an academic institution (which is my case) and tweet IDs are solely used for non-commercial purposes (https://twittercommunity.com/t/policy-update-clarification-research-use-cases/87566). Hence, by downloading these datasets you agree that you will not use it for commercial purposes.

Please cite the following paper if you make use of these datasets for your research: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/asi.24026
