Twitter for Academic Research

As we plan for the future of our developer platform we want to learn more from our academic community. What tools and resources would make it easier for you to conduct research with Twitter data, and what should we consider building?

  1. covid-19 related datasets of tweets

    Given the current need for data around covid-19 would you consider making relevant datasets containing tweet contents available now, possibly with some relaxed redistribution terms. There is a previous idea for datasets in general but right now there is a need for this data. Several groups are publishing different ID datasets but then anyone wanting it is having to pull down 70-300M matching tweets, that's going to be a load on your APIs and is slowing down access. I put a related topic up on the dev forums https://twittercommunity.com/t/covid-19-related-dataset-availability/136030

  2. Include citation score and impact factor for research papers tweeted and let governing bodies of academic research acknowledge the same

    Let researchers publish their paper via twitter editorial board. Hope it will be sooner than the existing lazy editorial boards of journal biggies.

    Give impact factor citation scores. Let the agencies that govern the academic policies involve twitter citations in their agenda.
