Twitter has become a popular data source in many research areas. Some of the specific features of Twitter make it possible to focus the research on some specific phenomenon and behavior, making Twitter a very versatile data sources and platform to study human behavior. In this webinar we will give an overview of some of these possibilities. We will start from data collection and end with presenting methods and examples to 1) map networks of conversational connections on Twitter, and 2) research content of the tweets.

To obtain the largest dissemination for our research, we are hosting three publicly available webinars, hosted by the American Society for Information Science and Technology. These will range from tutorial to empirical, in order to be of interest to a large audience. Information about the webinars can be found below and will be updated as more information is available.
