Using the Twitter API for Research

July 12 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

In this course, participants will learn to use the Twitter Application Programming Interface to retrieve tweets for use in research. We will cover R packages to connect to the Twitter API, retrieve tweets from specific users or based on keywords, and extract follower networks (i.e. who follows who). Participants should register for a Twitter developer account at least a few days in advance of the class at https://developer.twitter.com/en, and should install R and RStudio on their computers.

Learn more and register.
