Given the recent suspension of prominent political figures, this is now more important than ever. Twitter is a powerful, mainstream app that prominent public figures use for communication. Furthermore, researchers now rely on Twitter data across several disciplines.
How can cultural sociologists, for example, accurately study the Trump Era without access to his tweets, given how heavily he used the platform for messaging?
Given the recent slew of suspensions, It is critical that Twitter devise a method for allowing researchers to access this data.
Please and thank you, Twitter 🙂Robert Clayton supported this idea ·
