Investigating Twitter

Wednesday, March 14, 2018 // 12:00 pm

Paley Library: Digital Scholarship Center -- 1210 W. Berks Street, Philadelphia, PA 19122

This workshop will introduce several tools for using Twitter for social science research. Geared towards political science, media studies, and journalism, it will show ways of searching and analyzing Twitter hashtags and other indications of political trends. It will include at least one session on how to identify automated tweets, commonly known as bots. It will draw upon examples from my own research on state propaganda in the Persian Gulf, but asks others to bring in their own ideas for researching how authoritarian governments and social activists alike are using Twitter to promote agendas and ideologies.

Every other Wednesday, 12-1pm
Mar. 14, 28; Apr. 11
