We collected the data of a Twitter user using Tweepy to access the Twitter API. We crawled the list of each user account’s followers. Twitter allowed a request of a maximum of 200 tweets per time window and because of limitations of the Twitter API, we could only make a request every 15 minutes. Next, we obtained the most recent tweets of each user in the study. We extracted the most common hashtags used in the sample tweets and crawled the most recent 50 tweets that contained each hashtag and tweets that mentioned a particular user, for example ’@username.’ Initially, we chose 101 user accounts and documented the attributes of each user’s account (number of followers, a list of followers, and the recent tweets of each follower).
